Dear Nishijima Roshi,

What is the best way for you to support people who are in death process? Zen practionners or not?

Warm regards

Dear Nicolas Gounaropoulos San,

Thank you very much for your cinsere question, and my answer is as follows.

I would like to say to him or her what he or she would become joyful, but I do never tell him, or her any lie at all. If they are so sincere to listen to the true situations, I would like to say that it is taking a rest, perfectly peaceful, there is no anxiety, or no worry, and it may be perfect darkness for taking a rest.
