What is Death?
Death goes against our nature - nature of attachment to our body, possessiveness towards it and securing ourselves in its known territory. So we repel death and the sign of death called ageing. Both stages scare us as we don't want to let go. This is the state of any ignorant human being because this is how much he knows about it. He doesn't know what goes beyond death which is the realm touched only by a realized being and known by a true seeker. Knowing the truth of this ending as a new beginning of something better, a seeker goes beyond his fear and celebrates death to welcome a new life with open arms. For a seeker one birth of seeking ends into another birth of opportunity to proceed his spiritual journey from where he left it; this time being closer to his goal of enlightenment. A realised or enlightened being on the other hand goes beyond this circle of birth and death. In this talk Anandmurti Gurumaa lightens our path to the right understanding about death and how to be free of its fear.
