Chapter 8 - What happen when death draws near (mind processes immediately preceding death)

- Sub-Contents: (+ / -)

The Previous Chapters have dealt with classes of consciousness (types of mind) and the nature of deeds (kamma) regularly performed. Man is always occupied with these good and bad thoughts and these wholesome and unwholesome deeds. While thus being engaged, death taps him on the shoulder and so he has to leave behind his wealth, property and loved ones and departs this life for good. Therefore we should know the importance of time immediately preceding death and know we should face the coming death.
