10. Ghor Bhid No Chanto

in

(Seeking mercy from the pain of exiting from the body)

None of us knows when our life will come to an end. When our time is up, the soul has to exit from the body. The more a person is attached to this world, the more difficult it is for the soul to come out. This process has been compared to being squeezed out. Depending on a persons attachments, this process can be very painful to the soul. This Chanta is taken to seek mercy from this pain and to ease this passage. This Chanta also reminds us that death is certain and it can strike us at any moment.
