Reflections on Death

Just wanted to see if many people here practice this reflection?
The dogmatists have claimed to have found the truth, others say that it cannot be apprehended; the Sceptics continue the search.

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

often, possibly not as often as I should, but at least once a week.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
