What is death? How to prevent it?
When the birth taken by the
soul ends we call it as death.If we
call birth as the beginning then the death is the end.
This is law of the world!
This is the nature!
The movement of our body
or machine comes to an end, it stops it functions.
Some people die within a few
days of birth. Some foetuses are delivered dead.Some die after a few years of the birth. Some
die after many years of their birth.
Do all human die in the
same way or at the same time?Taking
birth and dying are not in the same way. Why? We are human races, isn’t?
Differences are in the
karma. Karma is the reason for the birth, similarly karma is reason for the death!?
Reason for death is aakanmiya karma! This karma accumulated
Human beings take birth
due to praraptha karma, if the human
start working towards self realization then aakanmiya
karma will not exist. How?
This is called achievement
of gnana!Can the death be prevented!? How?
When the soul departs the
body we call it as death isn’t it? If soul didn’t depart from body?
One needs to understand
the nature of the soul present in the body.The achievement is to realize the soul and make it stay in the body.
Why does the soul leave
the body? If body is not eligible to hold the soul then the soul leaves the
Spoiling our body is the
main reason. Aging is the natural reason and self destruction of the body is
If the quality of the
body is spoiled then soul leaves the body.
If we maintain our body in
a better way, based on the teachings of enlightened masters then body won’t get
spoiled and hence the soul won’t depart.
The main reason for soul
to leave the body is consumingnon-vegetarian foods like eating of fish, egg, flesh of animal and
birds. It’s equivalent
to paying money to approach death.
Eating Non-vegetarian food is not
applicable for human beings! Our digestive system is not designed to digest the
The organs of the human beings are
spoiled by eating non vegetarian food. Soon our digestive system will get spoilt.Death approaches the human very fast.
In the human body – the liver structure
is not designed to process the non vegetarian food.God has created our system to eat vegetables

will meet the death very soon.
considers all souls (uyir) as his soul” becomes mahathma. He becomes eligible to attain god’s grace.
kills the soul for flesh is an animal!One who eats the flesh is a mobile burial ground! All enlightened
masters in this world advised us to love all living beings. They appraised us only to show affection to
other living beings.They didn’t advise
to cut and eat the flesh.
prevent the death, as a first step one should start eating the vegetarian food.
Vegetarian food is the food of human beings.
When a living
being is killed, germs infect the body and spreads all over easily.
If one consumes the
flesh, the germs spreads all over the
body and becomes root cause for new diseases.
People never learn from
the bad experience!?
Our body parts are so
tender. Meat reduces the immunity in our body.Body will become so hard.
“Who slays naught,- flesh rejects- his feet before
all living things with
clasped hands adore” – Thriukural.
We need to lead a classic
life as stated by the saint Thiruvalluvar.
The next habit that
welcomes the death is consuming alcohol and drugs.
A drunken man loses his
character.A drunk person is not a human
being but an animal!
All types of drugs spoil
the liver, pancreas and the intestine in our body.It worsens the functions of the organs.
If the body gets damaged,
the soul can’t stay in the body.Somehow
human beings became mad and their mind started wavering. People consuming
alcohol, smoking, and drug addicts never survived and they never lived a life
We see advertisements
like, the family will get affected when one consumes alcohol. Alcohol is not good for both family and nation.After seeing this advertisement shouldn’t people
their mind. Government properties the alcohol shops, shouldn’t change after
seeing these advertisements?
Drunken, this name is
suitable for many people!
If you one wants to
overcome death, then one should bring his mind in evenness. Mind should surrender
itself to the thiruvadi to become pure.
We should not leave the
mind to travel in its way, if we want to stop it then it has to be fixed in the
When a person addicted to
the drugs, it spoils the mind, destroys the intelligence and spoils the
awareness, he will never attain prosperity in the life.
Gnana will happen when intelligence
improved.When one addicted to something
which spoils and deludes the
intelligence, how he can overcome the death?
We have banal
intelligence! Negligible intelligence!Don’t
we have to work on it to improve?Are we
going to destroy the existing intelligence?
One who contemplates is
the human!If one person is not able to
think and remains in the unconsciousness state, then that person is a zombie.
A drunken makes himself
as a dead person with high velocity.
Smokers also welcome the
Innocent people follow the
stupid people’s blabber that the drugs can lead to ecstasy. They started consuming
it and spoil themselves. If consumption of narcotic substances increases then nervous
system will become weak. Then the person will become mad.
Siddas and saadus emphasized human
beings many times to lead a disciplined life.No one attained gnana by
If a man wants to live as
human being, if he wants to overcome the death then he should not have any bad
habits. This is the teaching of siddhas.
It’s a social status for
younger generation to have alcohol.Society’s depravation starts here.
All the ways are open for
human beings to get spoiled.
Hey! Human! Behave like a

The next reason for death
is lust.A man with lust on woman and
lives with sexual enjoyment will die soon.
God is beyond one’s mind.
Mind works on senses.One who lives in sensual pleasure will not attain god
which is a heavenly bliss.
The example for
destruction due to lust on woman is the epic Ramayana. Raavana lost the blissful life due to lust on
Our epics and stories
teaches us many lessons on this. We should have limited sensual delight.

he will die.
One having a respectful look at woman he
will attain gnana”
Our saints looked at women
as their mothers. Before attaining gnana
they praised woman as vaalai kumarai-kanni. This is our culture.
How one can feel death?!
There are 3 states faint-sleep-death. Fainting is when consciousness gets out
of the track. Struggling of the soul leads to faintness. For a very short time he becomes unconscious.
Sleep - This is time for
our organs to take rest.Soul becomes
unconscious. It’s time to rest the soul in the middle of the body with very
Death is when soul no
longer can stay in the body, it leaves the body. Is death in our hand!?Can we stop it!?
We should be in a state
where akanmya karma will not affect
us, which is the root cause for death.We should cautious enough to avoid the soul departing the body.
God has kept our soul in
a safe place in our body.It’s
intelligent to keep it safely at that place.
Gnana is to make the soul to be there forever, and this is the achievement of gnana! This is the result of Davam!
Reason for taking birth
is not to attain death! We took birth to overcome the death! That is called Gnana.
This is what is conveyed
in Sanathana dharma. All human beings should work hard to avoid death.
says “One who sleeps and forgets to wake up” is a dead person.
In this world human
beings run behind food. People live to eat, he earns money for that.All human beings knowingly or unknowingly
