द्वौ सम्मताविह मृत्यू दुरापौ
यद् ब्रह्मसंधारणया जितासुः ।
कलेवरं योगरतो विजह्याद्
dvau sammatau iha mRutyU durApau
yad brahma sandhAraNayA jita asuH ।
kalevaram yogarato vijahyAd
yad agraNIH vIrashayeH anivRuttaH ॥
There are two difficult ways of dying honourably. Both are very difficult. One is to be able to reconcile with the supreme being and leave this body as is and die by performing Yoga (that enables you to control your breath). The other is to be in the fore-front of an army and never return from battlefield.
