Take your fate into your own hands by facing death, not fleeing from it.

Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. Understand death, Easwaran writes, and you'll live more wisely – you'll learn more, love more, and contribute more to all around you. By facing death, not fleeing from it, you take your fate into your own hands.

With stories from East and West, and quotes from the world's mystics, Easwaran explains the meaning of death, the process of dying, and how to use simple spiritual practices to find the source of abiding joy and security within us all.

This essay has been excerpted from Easwaran's book The Undiscovered Country.
