I guess nobody explains it better then the Master( Osho) himself.. Yes Death is an illusion and many are afraid of it !! the master beautifully says & i Quote from one of his amazing Book-The Art of Dying- “DON’T accumulate anything whatever: power, money, prestige, virtue, knowledge, even the so-called spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate. If you don’t accumulate you are ready to die any moment, because you have nothing to lose. The fear of death is not really fear of death; the fear of death comes out of the accumulations of life. Then you have too much to lose so you cling to it. That is the meaning of Jesus’ saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit.
I don’t mean become a beggar, and I don’t mean renounce the world. I mean be in the world but don’t be of the world. Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in spirit. Never possess anything – and then you are ready to die. Possessiveness is the problem, not life itself.
The more you possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your purity, if your spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever death knocks on the door it will find you ready. You are not losing anything. By going with death you are not a loser. You may be moving into a new experienceL”.. Unquote.. in the end i finish with Arthur Koestler words Nothing is more sad than the death of an illusion.

Death is an illusion, life is a dream and we are the creator of our own imagination
The present moment is the only moment available to us and is the doorway to all moments
– Thich Nhat Hanh
We have a culture to live life as if to survive and to hush the idea of death, to avoid this topic of discussion. Alan Watts explores this taboo with a different approach, that death and life are like fronts and backs of the same coin. Death gives meaning to life and gives us the opportunity to understand what life is all about
