Death - an essential subject
The soul is within the body and the body is changing at every moment. The last stage of this changing is called death. Death is nothing but the final change of this present body. That's all. No matter who we are, the troubles of birth, the troubles of death, the troubles of disease, and the troubles of old age are everywhere the same. We cannot escape death. But, we should not die like cats and dogs. Nobody can escape death, but before death we must know what is the Self and what is self-realization.
By death, everything is taken away by Kṛṣṇa. So this human life is meant for stopping this death. Krsna Consciousness means to be on the platform of deathlessness. Every sloka in Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam is informing us of this. If we read these books carefully we will understand this platform of deathlessness.
