AN00030639_001_lWhether you live a mundane life or for transcendence of this world, in the end, the one great matter is death alone. Just resolve, “When the time comes, so be it,” and every pressing concern will vanish.

It is from cherishing your existence and clinging to life that all obstacles arise. If you simply come to realize that death by some mishap is actually a cause for joy, you will be able to face all difficulties with tranquility.

Thus, if you sincerely aspire for the Pure Land, by all means firmly establish this truth for yourself and do not give your mind to things of this samsaric world.
