死亡

“Death comes to all and is part of our life cycle. Some die in their prime, others in old age, but all must inevitably die. Uninvited we came into this world and unbidden we leave it. Inevitably I am going to die – so does everybody, every plant, every form, every living being, which follows the same path.”

Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda, Life is uncertain, death is certain

“Uninvited he came, uninformed he went. As he came, so he went.”

Venerable Nārada Mahāthera, The Buddha and his teachings

死亡降臨在每個人身上,它是人生的一部份。有些人在風華正茂時死去,有些則在老年,但每人都必然會死亡。我們不請自來到了這個世界,也在沒有要求下離開。我無可避免將會死亡,所有沿着相同道路的人、植物和眾生也是一樣。

沒有邀請他就來,沒有告訴一聲他就走了。他怎樣來,就怎樣走。
