Ramana on the significance of wisdom and death

"Our experience of happiness is only during profound sleep when we have ceased to think of our bodies. Even a jnani (one who has realized the Self) speaks of disembodied liberation. Therefore, a wise one, a jnani, looks forward to casting off his body. Just as a coolie who carries a load on his head feels relieved soon after he reaches his destination and puts it down, so a jnani bides his time until he may cast off this load of his flesh and blood embodiment."
