You are driving car, running with seventy miles speed.. it is smashed accidently. But you are alive then you have to change your car. Similarly, we can drive this machine called the body for so many years; then it becomes old and we have to change it for another machine. This is the process of birth and death.
Death is not a big thing, what is important is God’s service.
If at the time of death one can remember Krishna, one’s life is successful.
Srimad Bhagavatam 10.1.5-7,
The unsuspecting fish, who knew nothing but a life in the river, went about its routine like any other day, but in an instant was ripped out of its reality to meet with death.
Either you are a beggar or a King, Every one has to die. Only devotee of the Lord knows where we go after death.
