How Yuan Tze views life and death

If I knew that tomorrow I was going to die, I would still have a very normal and happy day today.

Not getting too attached to what we have in this life is very important for overcoming fear of death.

In his own words:

"As a human, I am an ordinary person like everyone else. If you really want to make a distinction between other people and me, perhaps it lies in what I do and the way I see and do things; hence the different outcomes."
(VTTS v.1, p xi)

"My role is to pass on to others the treasures I have acquired."
(VTTS v.1 p 38)

"Everything I do here, including the verbal teaching, is done with special mind activity that builds a Qifield and uses it to carry and transmit special information."
(VTTS v.1 p 48)
