भागवत - मृत्यु

द्वौ सम्मताविह मृत्यू दुरापौ
    यद् ब्रह्मसंधारणया जितासुः ।
कलेवरं योगरतो विजह्याद्
    यद्ग्रणीर्वीरशयेऽनिवृत्तः ॥

- भागवत

dvau sammatau iha mRutyU durApau
    yad brahma sandhAraNayA jita asuH ।
kalevaram yogarato vijahyAd
    yad agraNIH vIrashayeH anivRuttaH ॥

- bhAgavata

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.
