Mystery of Death
(open to both kriyavans and non-kriyavans)
What is death? Few in this world can answer with authority. Starting in childhood we consider death a terror, a fearful and foreboding sword that can sever us from all we love. Is it possible that our assumptions are wrong? Perhaps death is our friend, not our enemy. Instead of hiding or running from death, we can gracefully dance with death. With incomparable insight, the God-realized master helps us see that both birth and death are joyful celebrations, and that death is not an end, just a footstep on the ultimate journey.
Swami Atmavidyananda ji will discuss the above subject elaborately.
“In this dance of life and death we all should learn how to dance to bring joy to both living and dying.” – Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
We will refer to Shree Guruji’s book “Dancing with Death”. You can procure the book from here : https://www.kriya.org/store/books/en
