Death can be the most painful and scary experience we face in our life. It can be the death of family members, friends, lovers or even our pets. And it also brings with it a lot of fear, especially of our own death, which is always there lurking in the back of our minds. Still, about 70% of us have never had a conversation about death. Can you imagine? And 60% of us would want to have such a conversation.
Today’s talk is about the meaning of death, what actually happens when we die, and how we can prepare for that moment. Because the truth is that death is unavoidable in this material world. As the ancient yoga text Bhagavad-gita states; “For one who is born, death is certain”. Many of us are afraid of the unknown – but this talk can give you true wisdom and freedom from the fear of death.
