If I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.

SAINT SEIYA | SHAKA, THE MAN CLOSEST TO GOD
Buda: Shaka! Shaka! Why are you so sad? You’re only 6, and every day you sit there to mourn. What is it that you’re so worried about?
Shaka: Today I saw many dead bodies floating down the Ganges river. And at the shores, I saw pilgrims from all India bathing. I was under the impression they celebrated death instead of life. Why? Why is this country I was born in so poor? It seems that we are born only to suffer and mourn. People live amid disgrace.
Buda: Shaka, does that makes you sad?
Shaka: Of course! Who wants a life full of sorrow?
Buda: You are mistaken. Where there is sadness, there is joy, and the contrary is also true. Beautiful flowers bloom, but eventually they wither. Everything in this world is in eternal change, always in movement. Never the same, everything changes, and the human life is also that way.
Shaka: But… If in the end death is inevitable, then maybe it is sadness that controls our lives. Even when we overcome suffering, even if we search for love and happiness, in the end death will turn everything into nothing. I don’t understand. Why are we born into this world if it is impossible to defy something so complete and eternal as death?
Buda: It seems you have forgotten.
Buda: Death isn’t the end of everything, death is just a transformation. Every man that was born in this Earth and that were called saints managed to overcome death. Shaka, if you enlighten yourself with this truth, understand your mortal condition, certainly you will become the man closest to God.
