Would you celebrate death with laughter?

Yes, the question is absolutely right. I witnessed my mentor hearing the news of his adopted mother who passed away when he was preparing to address a session of people. He had committed to the session and did not cancel it and agreed to go ahead with it. Flying back immediately was not an option immediately available. Within an hour there was a call again stating that his adopted dad also passed away and the last rites would be performed together. It did shake him a bit, however he did proceed with the session.
As we sat in the car to go to the destined venue of the session, we could see the range of thoughts swarming in different directions from his talk. The mood and inner climate were different as he had spent 20 years of his life with them. We reached the venue and people looked at him expectantly to share his wisdom.

He appeared calm and poised in front of the crowd and slowly moved them towards laughter. He brought out an activity where people could send a laughing farewell to his adopted parents in which he also participated immensely. He cajoled people to make laughter as a part of their work-life culture. It was a live demonstration of laugh at life.

When he came out of the session, he said it was a beautiful experience where he could see the rising flames at the burning ghats and he saying farewell with laughter.

How could one reach such levels of poise?
This awareness and heightened mindfulness is possible only for a person who has reached depth in meditation.
Death is a pre-determined destination for each one of us. That is the truth which we all know. Life is a real pilgrimage towards death. How many of us are really prepared to let-go of our loved ones when they reach the tomb? We react differently when we hear the news. Most of us wish and want to go back to the times we had spent with our loved ones. Few of us wish we had spent more time with them. Very few think of death as a liberation to the embodied soul and celebrate the freedom.
Every day, all of us are slowly moving towards the invisible time-line. If we could take a moment and foresee our destination, we would start looking at life differently. 
Isn’t it time to take life non-seriously and work on our inner being to alleviate ourselves from clinging to unwanted misery and lighten ourselves and become free of emotional burden. Live to celebrate life. The celebration can happen only when we have given enough time to our loved ones when they are alive and can see us, feel us, cherished us. Then let-go happens seamlessly.  Take out time for your loved ones now and bring about a turning point in life.
