A very dear friend of mine is completely consumed with cancer she's very very very ill. Is there anything that I can do or she can do to come through this? Come through means? Get cured? or die peacefully? yes..get better yes..get better...get well no...I'm not talking with any disregard for your friend but I want you to understand people need to die when and how is the only question..isn't it? so if death comes to us... yes...we'll do everything possible to save ourselves but if it goes beyond that, let us learn to die peacefully let's not fight with it and fight with it endlessly...you know It is a horrible way to die the way people are dying in Western countries is a horrible way to die even though they eighty five...ninety staying in a hospital with full of pipes and needles all over them This is not...it's okay if you die two years early...what's the problem? you die peacefully and gracefully... that's more important. isn't it? see death is the last thing you do in your life. Shouldn't you do it gracefully? we must learn to accept death as a part of our life we are not wishing death but when it comes, let us learn to go through it gracefully..you know? If there is a possibility of saving ourselves, living beyond that...that is fine but what I see in all the geriatric homes in United states many people are living beyond their death because of medical support and it is such a torture to themselves and to everybody you should see in some of the homes, they are being treated... not because of anything...but the people who work there... after some time, they get irritated because these dead bodies walking around they don't understand anything... they've forgotten everything...they are like... lost all their senses because they have lived beyond their time If there were not too much of medical input, they would have gracefully died at a certain point isn't it? there is no point in stretching it to one more month.. one more month.. one more month.. it doesn't make any sense but life is not understood that way we're always thinking of stretching it So...if somebody's body is broken beyond redemption let's learn to die gracefully let us make the person understand... it's okay it's all right...you know we're all in the queue... aren't we? So you are ahead of me...isn't that great? in any queue, you want to be ahead of everybody. isn't it? so I'm not trying to make fun of somebody's illness but we should understand where one thing stops and the other thing begins..Isn't it?
