Freedom from Fear of Death*

(p.112) 25 Learning to Live
Chaturvedi Badrinath

Tulsi Badrinath

Oxford University Press

Death was created by Brahma. Greed, anger, talking ill of others, envy, jealousy, ill-will, confusion of perception, shamelessness, and wounding words spoken to each other—these devour the bodies of those who are embodied. Everybody wants to live and fears death. In this essay Badrinath says how both the Mahabharata and Jaina thought make us aware of, in concrete terms, how to live, so that we can be free of the fear of death.

Keywords:   Mahabharata, Vyasa, Arjuna, Mrityu, Brahma, Yoga-vasishtha, immortal
