What is the greatest mystery in life? That although we see people die every day, we never believe we will die.
Easwaran is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. In this book Easwaran addresses the lessons death can bring. He sheds light on the perennial questions of time, desire, the nature of the mind, and the realization that the body is only the jacket of the soul, and that in death the body dies, but the person does not.
Nothing in life is more important than death, and nothing more urgent than learning to overcome it – not in an afterlife, but here and now.
