This is a matter of considerable interest to me, as I cannot live for ever.
Here are some thoughts from Swami Vivekananda, a great commentator on Hinduism.
- Be true unto death.
- Birth is re-composition, death is de-composition.
- Death comes to all forms of bodies in this and other lives.
- Death is better than a vegetating ignorant life; it is better to die on the battle-field than to live a life of defeat.
- Death is but a change.
- Death is but a change of condition. We remain in the same universe, and are subject to the same laws as before. Those who have passed beyond and have attained high planes of development in beauty and wisdom are but the advance-guard of a universal army who are following after them.
