    Death ends a life, but it doesn't end the relationship." Tanya Lord, 40, of Nashua, New Hampshire, was nearly incapacitated for more than a year after her 4 1/2-year-old, Noah, asphyxiated on.   When people talk of "happiness" and being happy, what they seem to mean is something approximating the following definition: "happiness" is the experience of being satisfied with one's self (who one is) and the circumstances of one's Life, including one's relationships, livelihood, living arrangements, and prospects for the future.

    Death takes place when all the accounts of karma of a persons's life are finished. The Gnani Purush puts a stop to the creation of causes and all that remains will be the effects, which one will have to endure. Bentham’s life was a happy one. He gathered around him a group of congenial friends and pupils, such as the philosopher James Mill, father of John Stuart Mill, with whom he could discuss the problems upon which he was friends, too, practically rewrote several of his books from the mass of rough though orderly memoranda that Bentham himself prepared.
