Reflections on Death and Dying

Life is subject to the laws of nature. It begins with birth and naturally comes to a conclusion at death. With birth there must invariably be death; whatever is born must die. Life is inherently endowed with birth,old age,sickness,and death. Death is a part of nature. These are the features of impermanence. Everyone is subject to these laws. Impermanence thus runs its course. This being so, why be distraught? Reflecting in this way dispels fear and anguish.
