This is from "Zen Flesh, Zen Bones", a wonderful collection of zen mantras and stories:



Tanzan wrote sixty postal cards on the last day of his life, and he asked an attendant to mail them. Then he passed away.

The cards read:


I am departing from this world.
This is my last announcement.

Tanzan.
July 27, 1892
