Easy

"The unalloyed devotees of the Supreme Lord, who are totally surrendered souls, do not care when they leave their bodies or by what method."

Today's Smart Quote is from the purport to Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 8.23:

TRANSLATION

O best of the Bharatas, I shall now explain to you the different times at which, passing away from this world, the yogi does or does not come back.

PURPORT:

The unalloyed devotees of the Supreme Lord, who are totally surrendered souls, do not care when they leave their bodies or by what method. They leave everything in Krishna's hands and so easily and happily return to Godhead. But those who are not unalloyed devotees and who depend instead on such methods of spiritual realization as karma-yoga, jnana-yoga and hatha-yoga must leave the body at a suitable time and thereby be assured whether or not they will return to the world of birth and death.
