Death and Dying

Gurudeva's short view on death as a simple transition from one chapter of life to another. Tamil Translation

Unedited Transcript:

As far as I am concerned, when the soul departs the physical body for good, one chapter of life is ended and another chapter of life has begun. A total continuum, except that, now after departing the physical body, they are full-time alive, they don't have to sleep.

In the fifty years of our spiritual organization, we have documented birth, death and birth again, within lives of our devotees and close initiates. A continuum of birth to death, to birth to death. A continuum of the karmas in unbroken continuity. That makes up a spiritual, alive, religious organization.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
