What is the difference between spiritual enlightenment and death?

Question by ?: What is the difference between spiritual enlightenment and death?
If enlightened man becomes a universal consciousness then dead man also mingle with universe when his body is buried.So what is the difference being enlightened and death?
Buddhists say that in Enlightenment there is no ego or emotion.After death of man he never feels ego!
So,why try to be enlightened when its automatically comes as death?
Or it taught because people don’t know(some know but they don’t have its heartful understanding) the uncertainity of life in earth?
Enlightenment lets you one into cosmos and naturaly death also?
Then,meditation for enlightenment is just a preparation for people who don’t know it?because human is very complex?
Many mystics said that its a experience.really what it is?
Why many people not enlightened even they do meditation?

Answer by The Rookie
You are, in fact, answering your own question.
Could you meet death without fear, but with courage and understanding ?
Death, after all, is no stranger to us, for we have lived and died innumerable times,
Encountering one rebirth after another, in the never-ending round of birth and death.

Death is just another change in existence, just moving on yet again.
This is my defination of death.

The difference between Enligthenment and Death is the endless round of rebirth and death.

It is difficult to follow the way to Enlightenment, but it is more difficult if people have no mind to seek such a way.
Without Enlightenment, there is endless suffering in these worlds of life and death.

Those who seek the path to Enlightenment must first remove all egoistic pride and be humbly willing to accept the light of The Enlightened One’s teachings.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all,
One must discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds,and
Wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the
Guidance of wisdom.
As long as people desire Enlightenment and grasp after it, it means that delusion is still with them; therefore, those who are following the way to Enlightenment must not grasp after it, and if they gain nlightenment they must not linger in it.

When people attain Enlightenment in this sense, it means that everything is Enlightenment itself as it is; therefore, people should follow the path to Enlightenment until in their thoughts, worldly passions and Enlightenment become identical as they are.
This is the essence of Enlightenment.

Why many people not enlightened even they do meditation ???
Engaging in meditation does guarantee that a person will be enlightened.
Most probably their minds are still in delusion, not purified.
Meditation( Bhavana) has no religious basis, and it was introduced by Buddha during his time to help people developed their minds.
Without Bhavana we cannot achieve the aim or purpose of our life.
The purpose of life is to see an end to our suffering.
Meditation is the development of the mind to achieve the eradication of mental impurities.
Thus, we gain purity.

The purification of the mind is essential in the practice of Enlightenment.

Is the journey to Self a part of the Buddhist’s road to enlightenment, or are the two not intertwined?

Question by My.Leaf.Is.Tired: Is the journey to Self a part of the Buddhist’s road to enlightenment, or are the two not intertwined?
I’m writing a paper on whether Buddhism “honors the individual and addresses the journey to self,” and was wondering if “enlightenment” includes finding one’s true self.

Buddhism does not believe in an individual self, and the term Self (with a capital ‘s’, usually) when used is generally a reference to the universal self, the fact that we are all one.

So the Buddhist goal IS essentially a path to Self – but not the individual’s ego-self. Not who you really are as you, but who you really are outside of you.
