switching over to the new environment by taking birth. Even after taking birth, one has to undergo lot of miseries due to stomach pain, mosquito bites, diseases, etc…and unable to communicate properly to theguardians about the needs. Such is the miserable situation.
The same purana describes that death is the most miserable problem in this world. Nobody wantsto die, but one has to face the death independently. Everyone has to face the death alone. Nobody cansay, ‘I am so afraid, I cannot face it’. No. There is no exception. It is said that one experiences a painequivalent to the sting of 40,000 scorpions at a time. Such is the misery.
It is described in Srimad Bhagavatam (third canto, thirtieth chapter), about how one executeslife and pass on to the old age and death.“He gives heart and senses to a woman, who falsely charms him with mäyä. He enjoys solitary embracesand talking with her, and he is enchanted by the sweet words of the small children. The attachedhouseholder remains in his family life, which is full of diplomacy and politics. Always spreading miseriesand controlled by acts of sense gratification, he acts just to counteract the reactions of all his miseries, andif he can successfully counteract such miseries, he thinks that he is happy. He secures money bycommitting violence here and there, and although he employs it in the service of his family, he himself eats only a little portion of the food thus purchased, and he goes to hell for those for whom he earned themoney in such an irregular way. Thus the unfortunate man, unsuccessful in maintaining his familymembers, is bereft of all beauty. He always thinks of his failure, grieving very deeply. Seeing himunable to support them, his wife and others do not treat him with the same respect as before. Deformed by the influence of old age, he prepares himself to meet ultimate death. Thus he remains at home just likea pet dog and eats whatever is so negligently given to him. Afflicted with many illnesses, such asdyspepsia and loss of appetite, he eats only very small morsels of food, and he becomes an invalid. Inthat diseased condition, one's eyes bulge due to the pressure of air from within, and his glands becomecongested with mucus. He has difficulty breathing, and upon exhaling and inhaling he produces a soundlike ghura-ghura, a rattling within the throat. In this way he comes under the clutches of death and liesdown, surrounded by lamenting friends and relatives, and although he wants to speak with them, he nolonger can because he is under the control of time. Thus the man, who engaged with uncontrolled sensesin maintaining a family, dies in great grief, seeing his relatives crying. He dies most pathetically, in great pain and without consciousness.”
Uninvitingly diseases come to us. There is no scarcity of diseases in this modern world. Onecan easily observe this from the flourishing medical field.

These problems are relative because, it appears in various degrees to eachindividual and one man’s suffering may be another man’s happiness.
