Today is the death of yesterday ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Because of this interdependence, the disintegration of all things in their current or original state is inevitable. Every change contains within it an element of death. Today is the death of yesterday. Most people accept that everything born must eventually die; however, our definitions of “everything” and “death” may differ. For Siddhartha (Buddha), birth refers to all creation — not just flowers and mushrooms and human beings, but everything that is born or assembled in any way. And death refers to any kind of disintegration or disassembly.

Hari ini adalah kematian hari kemarin ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Dikarenakan hokum sebab musabab yang saling bergantungan, Disintegrasi semua hal ke asal mulanya tidak dapat dihindari. Setiap perubahan mengandung elemen kematian. Hari ini adalah kematian hari kemarin. Kebanyakan orang menerima bahwa segala sesuatu yang lahir akhirnya harus mati; Namun, definisi kita tentang “segala sesuatu” dan “kematian” mungkin berbeda. Bagi Siddhartha (Buddha), kelahiran mengacu pada semua penciptaan – bukan hanya bunga dan jamur dan manusia, tapi segala sesuatu yang lahir atau digabungkan dengan cara apapun. Dan kematian merujuk pada segala jenis disintegrasi atau penguraian.
