THE TRULY DEAD
They are truly the "Living Dead," for they are dead to the world, and yet to themselves are alive for all time. They are the Perfect Ones who have consumed death itself; and about whom Kabir says, "Tan tyage, tan rahe; tan rakhe, tan jai. Yehi achamba hane dekha, mada kal ko khai." i.e. "Give up the body and it will remain; try to retain it and it will go."
The marvel of it is that the truly "dead" annihilate death itself.
