Meditation and the Art of Dying
“The success of life can not be measured while the person is still in the process of life. Only by the way he ends his life will we know whether it has been successful. Death is the measure of life.” For a meditator, pratyahara (the withdrawal of the senses) is an experience like death, where one drops their personality and attachment to the material world. In this book Swami Veda explores the average persons outlook and fear of death and then gives a beautiful and systematic account of the Yoga approach to death as a birth or transformation. Which in turn removes the fear and allows for liberation.
