Even at the

time that

the pebbles

are being

counted out, be not


nor terrified;

tell no lies;

and fear not the Lord of Death.

The body being a mental body is incapable of dying even though beheaded and quartered. In reality, thy body is the nature of voidness; thou needst not be afraid.
. . . Avoid awe and terror.

From the Evans-Wentz translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead
