Mindfulness of Death – The Human Lifespan hardly reaches a hundred years.
During the course of our usual thinking, what is it? “Thoughts of death” is the most important. However, we are the exact opposite, we spend the entire day thinking about permanence. Ah, this human life that we have hardly reaches a hundred, but we plan for ten thousand years, thousands of years. Now that Dharma is telling us about impermanence, think about it, keep thinking about it, why? With the thoughts of death, all the “attachment, ignorance and pride of the three realms” will be eliminated. Not only in the human realm, even as deities, after eighty-four thousand great kalpas, you still have to come down. There’s nothing to look forward to, nothing to desire. If you can remove this, your practice will be successful!
