A Worthy Book
Dying is an essential part of ourtime on earth. This book tells us howthose living an Eastern philosophylife departed from this plane ofexistence. The reports recited inthis publication are interesting, butthey also provide insights into thespiritual development of the oneswho died. The book can be helpful intalking to close friends who havea terminal loved one. The book issmall and the reports are short. It is easy to read just one story andput the book down, going back to itfor the next story without anyconcern for continuity. For thethinking and open-minded non-Easternphilosophy follower, numerousinsights are presented. To thosepracticing and involved in yoga, the pages can be inspiring. This isa book that is worth reading andkeeping.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Excellent Addition to Spiritual Book Collection
I cannot add much to what the reviewers above have said, but I learned a great deal about a more positive approach to death than we have in most of our western culture. The men and women in this book had focused most of their lives in contemplation and anticipation of death, and were practiced spiritual masters. Many of their exits from life were deeply inspiring, hopeful, and even humorous. Through meditation and other spiritual practices, they learned how to put death in its proper perspective: as yet another step in the ongoing journey of the soul. I highly recommend this book for those grappling with the fact of their body's mortality.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
