I think of what Darpan told me earlier about hitting rock bottom during the last days of his addiction. "I couldn't die. I couldn't live," he'd said of the dilemma of wanting to kill himself but knowing even that was impossible. Buddhists can't die—they are reborn again and again, in realms with names like cold hell, hot hell, hungry ghost hell. "It was better to live," he explained.
