Death is a destination shared by all living things. People view death with fear, as means of escape from worldly suffering, or a natural process of replacing the old with new, based on their own way of thinking. Different religions and cultures view spiritual enlightenment in different lights, but the basic meaning remains that being enlightened is having full comprehension of our purpose of life which ends with death.
According to the author of ‘On Death and Dying’ Elizabeth Kubler Ross, death is nothing but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body. A spiritually enlightened person does not fear death but views in different ways based on philosophy of his/her life.
