The most valuable way of living

Countless examples have proven that no matter how brilliant our life seems, or how prominent our wealth, reputation, and status we have, our minds are constantly in flux. The instantaneous birth and death of being is a phenomena beyond our control, where our bodies are continually aging everyday as we edge closer to death. If our dead body is offered by way of sky burial and is eaten by vultures, it will turn into guano. If we are buried in a coffin, it will slowly turn into soil. If by water burial our body is released into the river, it may be eaten by fish and eventually becomes a part of these animals…. everything is uncertain. Only through practice where we get to understanding the truth of the world, and by facing everything in a calm and joyful state, this is the most valuable way of living.
