Is what the Ven. Pôpjông (Beop Jeong) has done.

I found this statement of Pôpjông's to be quite moving, a fitting ending to a well-lived life:
“You will absolutely not kill any precious trees for any great cremation ceremony, and don’t waste money on new cloth for new burial clothes. There’s leftover firewood that I already gathered at my mountain hut. Cremate me there by the rocks where I used to meditate. Scatter my ashes on the ground where the azaleas graciously bloomed each spring. That will be my final recompense.”
