5. Illness, a Habit

“Life is the first mystery encountered by us, death is the last. We know something about the events in between and also a little about the processes of life and death….. It is unlikely that a purely physical approach will make us any wiser. Its utility too is doubtful since to conquer death without changing our inner life, prone to suffering and diseases of various kinds, would mean only a prolongation of our present ills.”
