Death and sleep

Death and sleep are fundamentally the same

Not different except in degree

Sleep is an imperfect death and death is a perfect sleep

This is the main key to all the teachings on death

Death is not the opposite of Life

But actually is one of the modes of living

A modification of consciousness

A change from one phase of living to others in subservience to karmic destiny

Our bodies are in a state of constant change

Their atoms are in a continuous process of renewal . .

Even while imbodied we are living in the midst of innumerable tiny deaths
