Two great truths govern human existence: impermanence is the law of the Universe and therefore it is inevitable, but the jeewatma (soul) is permanent and lives forever. When one views human existence from the perspective of this knowledge, then the only certitude is that there is no death. With the materialization of the Universe the wheel of time was set in motion, imprinting preordained impermanence. Yet, despite the world’s impermanence, Man is offered the opportunity of acquiring knowledge and achieving spiritual growth within his lifespan. The cosmic soul momentarily adopts a human body to experience advancement in human form. But when the jeewatma departs the physical body from one of the five koshas (sheaths), it is released from this confinement and bondage into the joyful revelation of its true nature. The soul experiences divine love and achieves a state of timelessness. The demise of the human body thus becomes the moment for joyful fulfillment – when the jeewatma achieves ultimate growth and eternal beauty. Though the human form and external body decays, the jeewatma or the subtle body/soul, remains intact in its true and original form. Litterateur Rajendra Kher has spent long years studying the subject of death. He has researched both ancient and modern references, as well as the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad-Gita, Srimad Bhagvatam and various mythological literature in his attempt to unravel and comprehend death and ‘life after life’. He has also analyzed the personal experiences of rishis, scholars, masters and yogis; adding his findings to the book to make it comprehensive. The gift contained in these pages is the lifting of the veil on death. In so doing, it frees each of us from unknown fears and dread about death and dying, enabling us to experience instead, true happiness and the grace of living.

Is death the end? Or, to put it another way, do we survive bodily death? Some shrug their shoulders and declare we simply can't know. Others just say no. And a few, flying their philosophical colors, pretentiously profess to not even understand the question. Curiously, the overwhelming majority of human beings throughout the course of history have taken it for granted that death is not the end, that there is a life after death. This striking and seemingly instinctive belief has been embodied in the religious traditions and philosophical reflections of most cultures. There Is Life After Death is the first of its kind in that it assembles and analyzes a comprehensive range of data on life after death and then provides the framework needed to understand the data. No previous book has presented such concrete evidenceevidence based on the accounts of eyewitnesses as well as on data derived from diverse sources through out the world and historysupporting the exi

This is a book about life after death as provided to me through journaling and a series of extraordinary events by my wife, Suzette Delashmet Shockley, after her demise. When these events started to happen, I, having not known or even though about life after someone has passed was in disbelief. I researched and kept an open mind. Because of these happenings and my research, I now know that when a person loses a good friend, a spouse, a child, or other loving relationship, the deceased person can come through. The stronger the love vibrations, the easier and the stronger the connection between them will be. In shock and deep despair over the death of his beloved wife, Suzette Delashmet Shockley-Barcafer, Ward Barcafer struggled to live his life. But to his surprise, he began hearing Sue’s voice coming through to him from her life in Heaven! ... (Paula Lenz) This profound inner play from the light of love gives insight to the presence of heaven on earth and the continual expression of earth connection to what is called Heaven. The depth and breadth of their love is known as a harmonic love. ... (Dr. Patty Luckenbach) For those of a skeptical nature, the proof of life after death is undeniable. For those who are grieving, the intimacy and teachings are comforting. For those who are curious, these are remarkable stories. ...

Clearly shows how the cults and parapsychology have modified the death experience & stripped it of meaning. It answers concerns such as: What is the cultic view of death: soul-sleep annihilation or conditional immortality? Is modern death research unbiased? Are all near-death episodes the positive experiences researchers would have us believe? Why do near-death experiences frequently represent initiation into the world of the occult? Is there any evidence for reincarnation? This book exposes the errors in the cultic/occult view of death & helps readers separate "the facts" from fiction.

Unlike many books about the afterlife, Life after Death makes no appeal to religious faith, divine revelation, or sacred texts. Drawing on some of the most powerful theories and trends in physics, evolutionary biology, science, philosophy, and psychology, D'Souza shows why the atheist critique of immortality is irrational. It is not only reasonable to believe in life after death; it is also beneficial. Such a belief gives depth and significance to this life, a path to happiness, and reason for hope.

We're all going to die. Yet in our medically advanced, technological age, many of us see death as a distant reality--something that happens only at the end of a long life or to other people. In The End of the Christian Life, Todd Billings urges Christians to resist that view. Instead, he calls us to embrace our mortality in our daily life and faith. This is the journey of genuine discipleship, Billings says, following the crucified and resurrected Lord in a world of distraction and false hopes. Drawing on his experience as a professor and father living with incurable cancer, Billings offers a personal yet deeply theological account of the gospel's expansive hope for small, mortal creatures. Artfully weaving rich theology with powerful narrative, Billings writes for church leaders and laypeople alike. Whether we are young or old, reeling from loss or clinging to our own prosperity, this book challenges us to walk a strange but wondrous path: in the midst of joy and lament, to receive mortal limits as a gift, an opportunity to give ourselves over to the Lord of life.
