The Hindu Book of The Dead


Description

About the Book
 
The Hindu Book of the Dead discusses all the concepts, beliefs and traditions found in these texts as well as the secular classical works about the death and its meanings critically. The significance of various funeral rites and rituals and their relevance for the soul and for those who are alive have also been explained. What are that ritual and their meanings and how the soul tries to overcome the cycle of life and death?

Highlights

• Death signifies an end to the body journey but the journey of the spirit i.e. atman continues.
• Rituals are meant to propitiate the soul and enable it to begin a new journey without the body.
• There are nine gateways for the atman to leave the body.
• Hindus believe that birth is the beginning of a process that does not terminate at death, though death does cause a temporary break.
• All schools of philosophy accepts that moksha is release from ignorance, sorrow and the life death cycle.
