Death is not only an act of creation but also a reunion with God and the enigma of a fleeting moment. When the soul, with its memories, returns to the primal wellspring of life, it merges with the numerous memories of diverse beings, reborn as a single droplet. In that moment, the former self ceases to exist, transforming into a fragment of another's soul, nameless and unknown. Thousands, millions, perhaps billions of years later, when all cycles of reincarnation conclude, we shall all be equally embraced by a grand illumination. In this realm, loneliness and suffering do not exist. I steadfastly believe that by persistently moving forward, even through adversity, we will eventually arrive at the eternal nirvana.
