His happiness and laughter was infectious. In his last days, when he was about to die, he was laughing the same way he laughed always. This was a matter of surprise to all his disciples, and one of them finally asked him: “Beloved Master, we cannot believe that you can be happy and laughing even now when you are on your death bed.
