Read an Excerpt

One of the things I have long hoped Llewellyn could do is help make people feel happier and better about themselves. Death: Beginning or End? by Dr. Jonn Mumford is a book that can do exactly that.

Death is a natural part of life. Most people in the West are terrified of death. To be terrified of death makes about as much sense as being frightened of breathing. And yet, the notion of death, perhaps because of its finality, bothers us.

Or perhaps it is simply because we don't know what happens after we die. Does your consciousness — your mind; who you are — just vanish? Or do you continue on? You'll find the answers in this book.

Here you'll find the answers to these and many other questions. You'll discover simple meditation methods that can actually slow aging. You'll discover what happens after death and how the consciousness is actually associated with our five bodies: physical, etheric, astral, mental, and spiritual. And you'll find documented case histories that show your consciousness will not die with the death of the physical body.

This is not a book about ends. It is a book about life and hope. It shines like a bright beacon indicating that your very essence continues. Knowing this — not just thinking or hoping it but really knowing it — has a remarkable result. It takes away fear. It takes away terror. And when the fear is gone, the terror banished, and the mystery revealed, life takes on new meaning.

I really hope you will study this book intently. Because the more you read it, the more you practice the meditation revealed in it, the more peace you will find and the more joy there will be in your life.

Meet the Author

Dr. Jonn Mumford (Swami Anandakapila Saraswati) wrote his first book "Psychosomatic Yoga" in 1961 while completing an intensive period of study in India. His current books include "Ecstasy Through Tantra, "A Chakra and Kundalini Workbook", "Mind Magic Kit" and "Magic Tattwas" from Llewellyn.

Dr. Mumford is a direct disciple of Dr. Swami Gitananda and Paramhansa Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Bihar. He was initiated by Swami Satyananda in 1973, at BSY Monghyr, Bihar State, India. Dr. Mumford is respected across the world for his knowledge and scholarship. A born teacher, Dr. Mumford frequently gives lecture on relaxation techniques, sexuality, Tantra and other aspects of human development and spirituality .

No mere theoretician, Dr. Mumford is a world renowned authority on Tantra and yoga. He has demonstrated his own self-mastery of cardiac cessation, obliteration of individual pulse beat at will, sensory withdrawal and voluntary breath retention over the 5 minute range, and start and stop bleeding on command.

His background combining chiropractic and psychology with extensive international experience in a wide range of Eastern disciplines makes Dr. Mumford eminently well-suited to the task of disseminating the secrets of Tantra unto the West.
