Glory of Death - Chapter 3
 

3. SORROW OF LIVING, AS LONG AS WE LIVE:
The other sorrow is that of living as long as we live. This sorrow is experienced by all of us daily. A servant takes advance payment yet does not come on time. Again and again one has to go to buy a gas cylinder, everything costs dearly, expenditure is on the rise; compared to this our income is less, our daughter is not getting admission in a college, we have differences with our children’s in-laws, neighbors, sons do not pay heed to our advice, son-in-laws oppose us, our body becomes diseased - etc. and many such problems time and again harass us. Despite running after joy we encounter uninvited sorrows. We experience all these sorrows of living everyday. In reality those who do not know how to live life carry the burden of these sorrows on their shoulders.
