What Happens When We Die and How to Prepare Now to Take Advantage of It
Although most of us prefer to avoid the topic of death, it is an inevitable event that we must come to terms with, especially if we are serious about our spiritual development. For the experienced spiritual aspirant, death ceases to be a source of fear or uncertainty, and instead is revealed to be what it truly is: a doorway, an integral part of existence, and an opportunity to elevate our consciousness.
The ancient teachings tell us that if we want to know what happens when we die, we must look to what happens when we sleep each night. When we die we enter the same world we dream within, but instead of returning to the deceased body we are propelled towards a new birth. If each night when we sleep we practice to enter the world of dreams with awareness, then when the moment of our death arrives we will be prepared to exit the body with awareness, and be capable of influencing what happens to us after death. That is the importance of astral projection: being awake in the dimension of dreams.
Samael Aun Weor wrote this book based on his own personal experiences of this process, while awakened in both the inferior and superior dimensions. Through anecdotes and by answering questions from students, he explains the recurrence of phenomena — the mechanical repetition of behaviors, events, and circumstances — that spin the wheel of nature around and around, which is the basis of our return into new bodies, and our repeated sufferings and problems. In Beyond Death, you will learn about the process of preparing for your own death, while also learning about how to negotiate karma, understand ghosts, magic, reincarnation, the dimensions of existence, kabbalah, the role of kundalini (pentecost) in the disintegration of our defects, and ultimately, how to guide yourself towards a higher way of living, even beyond death.
This book is fully illustrated with an extensive glossary and index. Collects several books in one volume:
1. The Book of the Dead: Originally published in Spanish as "El Libro de Los Muertos" (1966).
2. The Mysteries of Life and Death: Originally published in Spanish as "Los Misterios de La Vida y de La Muerte (1962).
3. Beyond Death: Originally published in Spanish as "Más Allá de La Muerte" (1970).
4. A Talk on the Mysteries of Life and Death: from a lecture.
Extremely insightful book, provoking deep thoughts about one’s ego, how are egos work how death works… Not completely finished with the book yet, but I highly recommend it.
I really liked the translation, it is the best translation I have read. Nice job!!!
A must and easy read - a very informative book
Extremely Interesting in order to get a glimpse of things awaiting for us after physical. A book that can be read relatively fast with not very difficult concepts and can be an option for new to Gnosis and Samael Aun Weor's books as well.
In this book Samael provides us with information on how to meditate and invoke passed on relatives, speaks for the Law or Return (which we mistakenly mention as reincarnation), along with karma and dharma and how to remember previous lives. He explains the concepts of Heaven and **** and what they actually refer to. Additionally in this book, we learn about important powerful prayers, specific Angels along with how how and when we can pray to each of them.
A must and easy read in my opinion, I actually read it twice.
Good book to reinforce the part of the Teachings relating to the processes of death. So much of our fear is based on death and it is so important for us to overcome that fear
Master Samael Aun Weor, explains what happens after death, well you you want to know, then read it, great book.
