Taoism On Death

Death mirror picture
Taoism's view about death is king of coming-going process , that is nothing special, just the law of transformation
Contrary to our expectations Taoism is not interested in death. Death is seen as part of the whole, more precisely a compensation and continuation of life. We basically born out of emptiness and go back to emptiness. Nothing else can be said about death (and life).

Death also means the release of bonds, and thus can be regarded as genuine liberation (in the Buddhist sense).

The ancient wise men who were models for the Taoist disciples were indifferent to death as well to life. That's why there are no records about their attitude towards this very exciting topic for us today.
