Why one should be afraid of death as flashed on the f.b. on March 7,2011.

Bishwa Nath Singh

Being afraid of death is like being afraid to give up an old and worn-out garment. In this regard, the mind is the root cause of fear and suffering. However, this fear and anguish can be a gift because it shows where the mind gets caught in the desired model of thinking how things should be. It projects its own level of reality out on the world and its perception of things. When things are not the way we want them to be, or think they should be, the mind has difficulty accepting it and we suffer. We then often get angry, anxious, confused, or fall into fear.

Let us be prepared both physically and mentally to accept death as inevitable that we can conquer by our good thoughts and deeds!

Death is inevitable and I think the fear will always be with us individually. Some have a solid belief in an afterlife. I personally feel that an afterlife is unlikely and death is a state of non-existance as it was before I was born. Nobody really knows for sure, but as it seems more and more that consciousness is the result of processes in the brain..i.e. no mind brain duality, I tend to doubt an afterlife...

Debashis Nandi :
Well........ i am not afraid of any outcome !!!

Syama Priya Devi Dasi :
If we study Bhagavad Gita and imbibe the truths that Lord Krishna explains then gradually all fears will go away. When we give our lives to service then we will think less about ourselves and more about others, and worries will cease.
