Guru Maharaj: It is said that the most painful time is as we leave our body. Someone asked me yesterday that we heard at that the time of death, the pain is like as if we are stung by 40,000 scorpions at one time. Actually, do devotees have to undergo such great pain? We see from the pastime of Nārada muni, that his leaving of his body was painless. But sometime maybe one has pain, I don’t know. I cannot remember. So, since death may be a very painful situation, it is good that we have some pain to practice and we can be ready for the final test.
