What is Death?

It is relief sought by the divine stuck in a mortal body which is a lot of fun until it starts to get old or sick with pain and degeneration. Finally you, the divine decide to give up and depart looking for other ways of fulfilling your dream of ultimate communication.

Of course, you carry on for decades with pain and suffering because of love and hope that tomorrow will bring  more pleasant environs. I watched my father die of cancer in pain. he too was hopeful right to the end that perhaps there will be some relief around the corner. But at 87, time wins, hope and love loses.

How do you avoid this painful end? Why by making it happen now? Nisargdatta Maharaj says death of the mind  will eliminate the suffering and the eventual pain at the end. Do it now.
