Ramana on death

"Good. The dead are indeed happy. They have got rid of the troublesome overgrowth — the body.
The dead man does not grieve. The survivors grieve for him. Do men fear sleep? On the contrary they court it and on waking up they remark that they have had a happy sleep. Yet sleep is nothing but temporary death.
Death is a long sleep."
