【Mindfulness of death】- Mindfulness of death instantly destroys all afflictions
So like this, not only what was mentioned earlier, all our afflictions and wrongdoings. “Afflictions” represents faults, and wrongdoings represents karma. Regardless of faults or karma, these are the cause for us to be in cyclic existence! You want to counter this, very difficult, very difficult. However, if you are mindful of death, hey, then you will destroy this immediately, it is “instantly destroyed”, just like a big hammer. Other things will not work, but this big hammer will crush everything to bits and pieces in a single strike, this is absolutely true. Anyone at any time, the moment you think of, “I’m going to die immediately!” You are unstoppable by anything, you will throw out all afflictions, this is absolutely true. What we are lacking now are the complete theory, together with contemplation and practice that is in accordance to the teachings.
