If we wish to die well, we must learn how to live well. Hoping for a peaceful death, we must cultivate peace in our mind and in our way of life.
The experience of death is a basic reality. Once we are born, death is inevitable. There are, however, extreme differences in the ways people experience death. Some live a full life before they die, while othes die early and unexpectedly. This depends on individual karmic patterns, which are based on the law of cause and effect. …Ultimately, the experience of dying and death can be terrifying or it can be completely free of fear. The choice is pretty much up to us, based on the quality of our present life and the strength of our belief system.
