What is Death

October 13th, 2020 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

“The day, man will find that he never really dies; that his Soul persists beyond death; he will have no more fear of death.”
– Swami Vivekananda

Death in Bhagvad Gita says that there is no death. In chapter two, it is said that the soul in the body never has birth or death. It is said that the process of changing the body is birth or death.

According to Lord Buddha, death is a natural process of the body. After death, the body is prepared for rebirth.The dying person should wait for rebirth. Buddha believed that birth & death are the natural cycle of Samsara. After suffering and following eight path of enlightenment, one can achieve Nirvana.
According to Christianity, death is the end of body. Scripture says though our body will decompose but the soul can go to God’s house eternally or separated from God.

Sikhism also believes that there is no heaven or hell. God fixes the date of death.

Now I will explain you about death. My father used to tell us  that death is real, life is untruth. I didn’t understand what my father had meant to explain the word “death”.

After analysing, I realised that life is Maya or illution like mirage. Whatever we imagine is not the truth. Whatever we think may not come true. Sometimes it comes true and we think that what we think, it becomes.

Death is very difficult, living is easier. While living, we can plan our objectives but sometimes it’s come true, sometimes not. Death cannot be asked for. It decides its own time.

I came to know that there are some mantras which can bring the death nearer to us. If we can chant it clearly and regularly, we can experience the process of death. But it is wrong to interfere in the God’s planning. Better wait for His decision.

When we reach the state of Nishkaam means selfless or desireless action and understand the process of detachment we will understand  the path of our Death.

At last ,I got a conclusion that when we are in a body, we are alive, without body means death.

Ruby Anniversary

October 9th, 2020 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

On the eve of this day,
we have completed forty- one years
Together with storms and cool breeze
What love we had, diminishing slowly
Could be I learn to detach myself.

Remembering the year Nineteen seventy nine,
I was young and good looking,
We tied a knot on Tenth of October
You were young as well as innocent.

Could not recollect,when these years passed,
Two boys became grown up and tall
And both settled in their life with two little angels.
They are busy with their work and promotions

Physical love has gone ,entered into spiritual life
Every month sit in silence for hours
Think how life begins and how it ends
Nobody is bothered and even doesn’t want to know.

Love life can be invaluable if anyone knows the value of love.
I pray to God that you will get the girl of your choice in next birth.
We have to bear each other till we get separated bodily.
