Leave taking

I will leave this world and return home
My delight in death
exceeds the pleasure of a merchant
who makes a vast fortune,
or a victorious war god,
or a sage in a total trance.
Like a traveller taking to the road,
I will leave this world and return home –
My life is over and my karma is done with –
I am approaching the ground of primal perfection.

Longchenpa, (1363) Tibet
