What is the most amazing thing that people think does not happen to them within this world?
Yamaraja once asked Maharaja Yudhisthira, “What is the most amazing thing within this world?”
Maharaja Yudhisthira replied:
ahany ahani bhutani gacchantiha yamalayam
shishah sthavaram icchanti kim ashcaryam atah param
“Hundreds and thousands of living entities meet death at every moment, but a foolish living being nonetheless thinks himself deathless and does not prepare for death.
This is the most amazing thing in this world.” Mahabharata, Vana-parva 313.116
