Thought for This Moment

By Phiroz Mehta

Death brings release both to the one who dies and to those who are left behind. But especially the death of a parent, or spouse, or one’s child is a wretch for the living, whatever may have been the relationship between oneself and the departed one. Death is so strange: utterly stark, absolute, unanswerable.

We can never argue with death or persuade it not to touch us. And, due to the way in which we are conditioned by our society, it is always something which causes us pain or grief, one way or another, some time or other. So one feels bereft, lonely. In such a situation one needs strength, the comfort which is soul-strength.
