" . . . One should not be afraid of dying, but one should be cautious and ask, 'What sort of situation will I attain in my next life as a result of my activities?'"

Today's Smart Quote is from A Second Chance, Chapter 17, in the section entitled, "Permanent Credit."

. . . It is nature's law that everyone here must die. No one who takes birth in the material world can live eternally. The material world is called Martyaloka, meaning that every living entity here is subject to birth, death, old age, and disease. In illusion, people do not see this. They try to adjust their material condition so that they can live perpetually. Modern scientists also aspire to be immortal, in imitation of Hiranyakasipu. This is all foolishness. One should not be afraid of dying, but one should be cautious and ask, "What sort of situation will I attain in my next life as a result of my activities?"
