This book will dispel your fears and doubts and cast a light over the darkness of death. It is our narrow, materialistic and limited physical perspective which makes us regard death as an irrevocable loss and a calamity.
Dada J. P. Vaswani says, "There is no death! Death is very much like sunset. It is only an appearance. For when the sun sets here, it rises elsewhere. In reality, the sun never sets! Likewise, death is only an illusion, an appearance. For what is death here, is birth elsewhere. Life is endless." Dada J. P. Vaswani's message is the conquest of pain and suffering through the power of love, hope, joy and peace.
Lucidly, with anecdotes, stories and real-life incidents, Dada J. P. Vaswani shows us that death is not to be feared, but it is an aspect of existence that we have to come to terms with. In his inimitable words, we have to "cultivate friendship with death."
This book is a compilation of a series of lectures delivered by Dada Vaswani. They elucidate his simple yet practical solutions about how we should live our lives, how we can prepare ourselves for the life hereafter, and how we can attain illumination after death. This is a book for seekers of truth, especially those who have suffered bereavement at the loss of their loved ones, and will bring comfort and a profound understanding of the mystery that is death.
