The Final Journey is an excellent, user-friendly resource for anyone who is providing care to a terminally ill loved one. It is the only book of its kind to address the specific needs of a dying Vaishnava. However, since the printing of the first edition in 2001, The Final Journey has proven to assist those who hold other spiritual values and beliefs as well. It offers the caregiver practical ways to provide "quality of life" to anyone preparing to pass away from this world.
2nd edition; updated and revised (52 additional pages).

During his final days in Vrindavan in 1977, Srila Prabhupada told his
disciples, ‘Don’t think this won’t happen to you.’ In light of this instruction,
I highly recommend this book as a most important contribution to our
society.

had the distinct pleasure of reading The Final Journey—Complete
Hospice Care for Departing Vaishnavas. I found it very simple, informative,
and appropriate for both devotees and non-devotees alike. As a Hospice
Physician and Medical Director, I strongly recommend this book to
families of terminally ill patients as well as to hospice professionals.
