IS THERE ANYONE LIKE THIS?
"Because I have parents then I fear the Yama (King of Death) will come and take them away from me at any time.
If I don't have, whom will he take?

Because I have wife and kids then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away from me at any time.
If I don't have, whom will he take?

Because I have friends and relatives then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away at any time.
If I don't have, whom will he take?

Because I have house and precious things then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away at any time.
If I don't have, what will he take?

Because I have fame and high position in society then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away at any time.
If I don't have, what will he take?

Because I have experiences, knowledge and belief then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away at any time.
If I don't have, what will he take?

Because I have body and mind then I fear the Yama king will come and take them away from me at any time.
If I don't have, what will he take?
If I have no body and mind, where will he able to lay a finger of his on me?

So, anyone who can be without a thing, the Yama king can do nothing to him at all and he is always serene and in peace.

Is there anyone like this?
