Tormented by suffering of birth, illness & aging we move ever closer 2 the end of our lives & the end of suffering.

At that time of death, when the breath inhalation & exhalation goes faster & faster up until one strong & deep exhalation (the last breath) stops all breathing, marking the end of earthly life, is in fact completed only shortly after, when the consciousness departs from the heart in the body & the Self is absolutely freed from mãyã, though not freed from the sufferings of the afterlife, samsara & reincarnation or rebirth.
