About the Book:

None wants to face it though all know they cannot escape. This book may help understand death and realize the importance of life.Jatasya Hi Dhruvo MrityuhAll those who are born are bound to die. Despite this people fear death. The thought of leaving this planet and the failure of existence create fear. A person who understands the true nature of death realizes that it is only a stage in the life cycle and not a curse. To get this realization demands a different perspective. Unlike Hebraic faiths and body-centric cultures that believe in the linear existence of life, Hinduism believes in the cyclic concept. The concept of the immortality of the life-energy or soul and the karmic cycle form the core of Hindu spiritualism. All Hindu scriptural texts, from the Vedas to Nibandha (treatises on rituals) discuss them at length. The focus is to liberate the soul from the body and overcome the cycle of birth and death. The Hindu Book of the Dead discusses all the concepts, beliefs and traditions found in these texts as well as the secular classical works about death and its meanings critically. The significance of various funeral rites and rituals and their relevance for the soul and for those who are alive have also been explained. What are those rituals and their meanings and how the soul tries to overcome the cycle of life and death? Where the journey ends? The body is dead but the soul still has to travel. The book tries to explain the What, Why, Where and How of what is described as death. It also presents a comparative picture of the beliefs and traditions held by other faiths and cultures.
