“AFTER-LIFE”- Experiences beyond incredible

AFTER LIFE -  Experiences beyond incredible

Death is a frightening reality. It is a depressing and inevitable consequence of life. Scholars say that death is the part of divine law, governed by nature and cannot be denied. Life after death is hard to discern in the civilized world. Religious barricades and philosophies have pushed the limits of sensible understanding beyond one's comprehension. The more we imagine the more we get confused and hardly can do anything to fathom reality.

What is the truth?  Be there any ray of light beyond the darkness of death?  
Let’s examine some of the real life experiences.

 A man from India narrates:

‘I was travelling through the forest to reach the nearby city for my daily work. The terrain was as usual, muddy due to heavy downpours, the previous night. Two men clad in red clothes were approaching from the opposite end.  They were tall and of strong built.  Thick  moustache and stern face gave them a terrible look. 

 “The dacoits”, I thought.   

One of them motioned  me to stop and said, ‘don’t fear us.’  I was frightened and was searching for options to flee and save the life. There were none and nobody, who could be called for help.  

Hesitatingly, I moved towards them and dared to ask, ‘What do you want from me?’

The taller of the two beckoned and whispered, ‘You keep away from the road. A Bullock cart is coming and we are here to check on it.’

I could see nothing ahead. There was no sign of any such vehicle.
 ‘Are you from the police?’ I asked. 
 The taller of the two stared at me and smiled for the first time.

‘Driver on that cart will die here and we will take him.’ The other man replied with a frown. I was stunned. It was unbelievable. There was a complete silence. I was recalling his words, trying to figure out the meaning.

We waited patiently;

 A bullock cart appeared at the other end of the road, pacing towards us at medium speed. The Bulls were controlled by a short height lean person clad in Dhoti. It approached us and then all of a sudden one of the wheels of the cart sunk deep in the mud.  Bulls Stood Still. The driver shouted at them to steer out off the ditch but the animals didn't move. Angry and agitated, he jumped out of the cart and stood near the beast.

The man shouted again, whipped and pushed them forwards.  All his attempts to roll the stuck wheel out of the ditch went futile. The man was both infuriated and helpless. All of a sudden the beast tore the belt around the neck ,set free from the cart and charged the driver straight on his chest, hurling him up in the air.  The victim stayed in the air for a few seconds, dropped down on the nearby Bush and died on the spot. The two men looked at each other and kept quiet. They didn't make any move.

 What happened?  I asked in dismay.
 ‘We can't take him now’ the man replied.
 ‘Why?’ curiosity had begun to grow.

He pointed towards the bush and said, ‘His body touched the sacred Tulsi leaves. We can't take him anymore.’
'The carriers from “ DEVLOK”  have come and there they are.’ muttered the taller one.

 I was unnerved. Fear and anxiety dissuaded me to converse any further.


Can we  figure out anything sensible? Did it really happen? Is everything cooked and concocted? Certainly, judgment is at your discretion.

 Scientists at the University of Southampton spent four years studying and examining two thousand subjects that suffered from cardiac arrest at various hospitals in UK and US.  Working on awareness after death revealed some very incredible but interesting facts. It was found that 40% of the studied subjects described some form awareness during the time when they were clinically dead and resuscitated Back To Life.

 One man vividly recalled, leaving his body and watching the resuscitation from the corner of the room.

 It is known that the brain can't function if the heart stops beating. The brain will stop transmitting impulses within 20 - 30 seconds after the heart has stopped.

How is it possible that despite being unconscious and dead for 3 minutes, 57 -year - old man from Southampton could recount the action of doctors and nursing staff in detail?

Some recalled seeing a bright light, a golden flash or the shining Sun. Some of them shared the experience of being levitated while others recounted their unpleasant feeling of being ‘dragged’ through deep waters.

 Scientist termed these experiences as Hallucination and illusions corresponding to actual events.

A lady recalls  similar type of experience when she had died and preparations were on, for the last rights.

 “I was taken and made to stand in a Que. A crowned man, the Maharaj, was calling everyone by their names and checking the records. He called my name and shouted at the subordinates. ‘Take her back quickly or it will be too late. Her days are not over yet’. The soldiers took me by hand and dragged me back to this place.” She was panting and sweating after waking up. The relatives were astonished and dumbfounded.

 It is difficult to understand life after death without a very good piece of evidence. None of the available gadgets today can specifically account for or measure the truth.

SRIMAD Bhagavad Gita States that the spirit is neither born nor does it die at any time. It is  Unborn, eternal, permanent and primeval. The spirit is not destroyed when the body is destroyed. Swords cannot cut it, fire cannot burn and water doesn't make it wet. They put on new garments after discarding the old ones.

Lord Krishna told Arjuna “both you and I have taken many births.  I remember them all, O Arjuna but you do not remember any. God and after life are not meaningless as long as there is an empirical evidence in the form of experiences.
