Yoga Sutra 3.23

sopakramam nirupakramam ca karma tat samyama aparanta jnanam aristebhoyo va

By preforming samyama on the two types of karma, fast acting and slow acting, or upon omens and portents: the exact time of death can be predicted.

The karma from actions preformed is immediate in results if the action is intense or lacks intensity samyama on the intensity gives us a direct knowledge of the time and circumstances on the bodies death.  

Also omens and portents can let us know our time is near.  It is being in tune and touch with our true nature.  There are three kinds of foreshadowing personal, elemental, and divine.  Example you may quit hearing a anata – nada ( inner sound)  An elemental sign may be seeing a ancestor in a dream and divine might be to glimpse the boundlessness of the beyond.  

This skit that keeps ringing in my head is from the movie Caddy Shack.  Bill Murray is a groundskeeper for a golf course and is explaining his interaction with being the Dali Lamas Caddy.   

  • looper at a course over in the Himalayas.
  • Angie D’Annunzio: A looper?
  • Carl Spackler: A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I’m a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald… striking. So, I’m on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one – big hitter, the Lama – long, into a ten-thousand-foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga… gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.” And he says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.
