Leavetaking

leavetaking

My delight in death
exceeds the pleasure of a merchant
who makes a vast fortune,
or a victorious war god,
or a sage in 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 (1308-63), Tibet
