Dialog between Buddha and a dying man

Scene: A man on his death bed.

When he realised it, he saw Buddha coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

Dialog between Buddha and Dying Man:

Buddha: Alright son, it’s time to go

Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…

Buddha: I am sorry but, it’s time to go

Man: What do you have in that suitcase?

Buddha: Your belongings

Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money…

Buddha: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth

Man: Is it my memories?

Buddha: No. They belong to Time

Man: Is it my talent?

Buddha: No. They belong to Circumstance

Man: Is it my friends and family?

Buddha: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled

Man: Is it my wife and children?

Buddha: No. they belong to your Heart

Man: Then it must be my body

Buddha: No No… It belongs to Dust

Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!

Buddha: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to energy.

Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from the Buddha’s hand and opened it…


With heartbroken and tears down his cheek he asks Buddha…

Man: I never owned anything?

Buddha: That’s Right. You never owned anything.

Man: Then? What was mine?

Buddha: Your MOMENTS.
Every moment you lived was yours.

Life is just a moment. Live life. Live the present moment
This beautiful message must be shared to appreciate the meaning of life
