Nobody wants to die however acutely the source of sufferings one's body may be; but up till now even in the days of so called scientific advancement of knowledge, there is no remedial measure either for old age or for death. Old age is the previous notice of the arrival of death served by the cruel time and nobody can refuse to accept the either summon call or the supreme judgement of the eternal time. This is explained before Dhritarastra because he might ask Vidura to find out some remedial measure for the imminent fearful situation informed by him (Vidura) as he has had ordered many times before, contradicting the advice of his youngest brother Vidura. Before ordering like that Vidura informed Dhritarastra that there was no remedial measure by anybody or from any source in this material world. And because there was no such thing in the material world therefore, death is identical with the Supreme Personality of Godhead as it is said by the Lord Himself in the Bhagwat Geeta (B.G. 9/19) #$p#Death cannot be checked by anybody or from any source within this material world is very significant. Hiranyakaspu wanted to be immortal by undergoing a severe type of penance by which the whole universe was trembled and Brahma Himself approached him to dissuade Hiranyakasipu from such severe type of penance. Hiranykasipu asked Brahma to award him the blessings of immortality but Brahma said that He Himself was subject to death even in the topmost planet and how could he award him the benediction of immortality. So there is death even in the topmost planet of this universe and what to speak of other planets which are far far inferior in quality than Brahmaloka the residing planet of Brahma. Wherever there is influence of eternal time there is the set of tribulations namely birth, diseases and old age and all of them are invincible. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_19"#TEXT 19#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#pratikriyā na yasyeha#/dd# #dd#kutaścit karhicit prabho#/dd# #dd#sa eṣa bhagavān kālaḥ#/dd# #dd#sarveṣāṁ naḥ samāgataḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#pratikriyā#/i#—remedial measure; #i#na#/i#—there is none; #i#yasya#/i#—of which; #i#iha#/i#—in this material world; #i#kutaścit#/i#—by any means; #i#karhicit#/i#—or by anyone; #i#prabho#/i#—O my lord; #i#saḥ#/i#—that; #i#eṣaḥ#/i#—positively; #i#bhagavān#/i#—the Personality of Godhead; #i#kālaḥ#/i#—eternal time; #i#sarveṣām#/i#—of all; #i#naḥ#/i#—of us; #i#samāgataḥ#/i#—arrived. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# This frightful situation cannot be remedied by any person in this material world.
