Life and Death: Dealing with Death Blissfully!

Birth and death are two realities of life, and create different emotional reactions. While birth is celebrated, death is mourned. Losing a loved one is the hardest thing in life and when a loved one dies, friends and family spend time grieving and mourning their loss. However, such a reaction generates and sends negative inner vibrations to the departed Soul, which makes their departure painful.

So, what should you do when a loved one is dying? What should you do after the death of a loved one? It is often said that you must remain calm and stable. However, what type of understanding is needed? Is it possible to cope with the loss of a loved one, peacefully without feeling any suffering? Yes! Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan has given us a practical way to handle the situation. He says, “When you grieve, your grief reaches them [the dying person] and when you pray for him, your prayers too reach him and he will be at peace.” By applying this key, you will also be able to remain stable and feel peace within.

Prayer for the Dead

To help someone who has died, pray to their pure Soul using the tool of Pratikraman, or spiritual apology. This releases bondage of attachment or aversion with them.

Spiritual Quotes

  1. In God's vision, no one ever dies. If God were to give you this vision, some day, then no number of deaths would affect you in this world. This is because of this right vision (Gnan).
  2. In reality one does not die nor does one live. This is all just a mistake in one's belief. He believes that he is living, a mortal (jiva), but in reality, he is immortal (Shiva).
  3. The Soul is free from the bondage of birth and death. It is eternal; it has no death.
  4. This phenomenon of taking birth and dying is of the ego. It is the ego that is born and it is the ego that dies.In reality the Soul does not die at all.
  5. There is birth after death and death after birth. Why does this cycle continue relentlessly? It is because of 'causes and effects, and effects and causes' that the cycle perpetuates. If causes were destroyed, effect too would come to an end and another birth would cease to occur.
  6. Karmas are bound through the act of doing, through the act of making others do or through the act of supporting others do the act.
  7. Life in my enlightened view is a prison. There are four kinds of prisons: Those who are in heaven are in the prison of simple surveillance with all the comforts. The human beings are in a simple prison. The animals are in a prison of intense labor and hardship. Those in hell are in a prison of hell with life long pain and torture.
  8. The cycle of birth and death is for the ego. The Soul is in its own state. When the ego stops, this cycle also stops.
  9. Causes of new karma can only be stopped in the human life. There is only effect in all other life forms. In human beings there is both causes and effects.
  10. The Gnani never mourns, but he will play out his worldly role with sincerity. 'The world is a drama itself.' All you have to do is play the role. Perform this role with sincerity.
