How to Cope With the Death of a Loved One
The death of a loved one can be painful but what makes it even worse is its unexpected arrival. In such a situation, one must realize that death is a reality and no one can escape it. It reigns supreme over the life of the mortals. Death is common to all and is the essential and ultimate destination of life. All the grief, sorrow and sufferings and lamentations are simply futile as these cannot save the dying ones nor bring the dead back to life. So instead of lamenting, one should understand the truth of life and death. It will give us peace of mind. We will be free from sorrow and then move on the path of immortality.
