What a Wonderful Way to Explain Death………….

Image result for images of a doctor and a sick man

A sick man one day visited his doctor and as he was preparing to leave the examination room said, “Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side. I have this fear of dying and for that am not being able to sleep normally too.”  Very quietly and in a gentle voice, the doctor said, “I don’t know”. The sick man was very sad that he could not get an assuring reply from the doctor and got up to go.

The doctor very kindly got up and held the handle of the door for the patient to leave; on the other side of the alleyway came a sound of scratching and whining and as he opened the door fully, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness and joy and started licking the doctor all over.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, ‘Did you notice my dog? He has never been in this consulting room before.  He didn’t know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear but with joy and happiness at seeing me. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing and that is: ‘I KNOW MY MASTER IS THERE AND THAT IS ENOUGH’.

From this simple yet profound words of the Doctor, the sick man understood what death meant. He thanked the Doctor profusely for opening his eyes and he was overjoyed.  He went home a happy man and he was not scared of embracing death when it would come with open arms. Death was a Celebration. Face challenges with a Joyful Heart.

Live Simply, Love Unconditionally and Enjoy Life.

    1. Yes absolutely true and agree totally with your words, Kate. Today we are all open to this debate and it has been told in such beautiful and profound words with simple analogy of Truth that Death is simply a move on from this body that will perish to another body that we will soon take depending on our sanskaras and karmas. Thanks so much dear for your valuable feedback.

    1. Yes absolutely and why worry when we know our Master is always there with us in living as well as in dying and look at the analogy of how the Dr explained awesome isn’t it Krishnapriya. So why not have complete faith and trust in God who is always there with us no matter what. Thanks so much for your superb comments dear.

  1. Beautifully explained!! Fear of dying is something that doesn’t let us live freely. Isn’t it ironical that each one of us wants to reach heaven but no one wants to die??

    1. Yes and look at the simple yet profound truth in the story which is a reality. If we have our master with us as we live and also when we have to die then why worry when our time comes simply say our goodbye and depart in his hands. Thanks for the valuable share dear Amira.


  2. It’s heartbreaking, but you’re right, it’s a good way to explain death to give comfort, that sense of how everything will be okay, to trust in having that higher power being there for you, that you’re not alone. Thank you for sharing this.xx
