I. Introduction A. Death B. Background: What is death? Death is the cessation of the connection between our mind and our body. Most people believe that death takes place when the heart stops beating; but this does not mean that the person has died, because his subtle mind may still remain in his body. Death occurs when the subtle consciousness finally leaves the body to go to the next life. Our body is like a guesthouse and our mind like the guest; when we die our mind has to leave this body and enter the body of our next rebirth, like a guest leaving one guesthouse and travelling to another.

The theme of death
Death is the termination of the link between the mind and the body. It is widely believed
that death occurs at the moment the heart stops beating, but according to the definition of death
herein used stopping of the heartbeat does not necessarily mean is dead because the mind and the

about it. The following short stories will help in understanding the abruptness and inevitability of
death.
