“The poison drum” refers to a drum that is smeared with poison. It is said that when it is beaten, those who hear the sound will all die. This is a metaphor showing that the Buddhist teachings will sever all those who listen to them from their earthly desires.

The above is from a sermon given by a Buddhist priest.

Would it be better if the part in bold is written as follows?

all those who hear the sound will die

Thanks.
