Life and death are important to everyone because they are our destiny. No one can deny or run away from the cycle of birth, aging, sickness and death, or the agony and pain that are an integral part of real life. We can only muster the courage to face all these. But how should we face death? Most people are completely at a loss for an answer to this. However, if the whole dying process can be transformed into a very happy and meaningful journey of liberation, then there is no need to see death as an enemy and feel anxious and frightened about its coming.
