In the Water Margin, Lu Zhishen remembered the four sentences given by others when he heard the tidal sound of the Qiantang River, so he thought it was time to pass away. Then I took a bath, changed my clothes and sat down and passed away.
Buddhism specializes in solving the problem of life and death. There were many people who were able to decide death on their own after practicing for a lifetime, and there are also many people now. This path is still easy, so there are still many people who practice. The records are from the past, and some Buddhist public accounts and nursing homes broadcast after 2015. This phenomenon is rare but normal. This is the result of other people’s practice. But Lu Zhishen could not see that he had practiced. I feel that the novel is made by pinching two kinds of people together.
Without telling the story, this is really possible. When a person’s body fails, he uses energy to supply life-sustaining organs, such as the respiratory system and circulatory system. At this time, the state that people show is coma. When the dying person has any unfulfilled wishes, it may happen that he first coma, then wake up and explain the funeral, and then die calmly after the funeral. People with stronger willpower may make this process look more controllable and take longer. For example, their mentality is clearer. The look is more peaceful. After being relaxed, he soon entered a coma until he died. But it is essentially the natural failure of the body. High monks can pass away if they want to pass away, but they can live two more days if they can’t. Because their physical condition does not allow them to do so. As for things like predicting the date of his death very early, it is probably the fabrication of the story.
The term “death” has been commonly used over the years because of the death of monks and nuns, and some novels have also used it, so it is equated with “death”. In fact, the so-called “passage” in the death of monks and nuns is mostly honorific. The true “passion” is actually death or nirvana. In fact, very few can achieve this. Buddhism has been attached to too many mysteries, and what kind of magical powers are eye-opening, as if omnipotent. In fact, even the Buddha does not claim to be omnipotent. The premise is always forgotten by people. This sentence itself covers the core of Buddhism practice: the condition of breaking karma. Buddhism believes that the so-called birth and death, fortunes, and even reincarnation of all things in the world are actually causal. If you break the cause and effect, you can jump out of reincarnation and world karma. Death is nothing but the fruit of life, but after death it has to turn into reincarnation. Nirvana means jumping out of cause and effect, and there is no time, space, and karma.
