Death is but a part of life. This is the work of a lifetime. Like Shahmardaan's previous books, this book provides deep insights into both life and death. The author's profound spiritual realizations find very clear expression, and the clarity with which they are conveyed helps to establish a greater depth of realization, an understanding of the profound, basic truths of human existence. Recognizing the place of death in life is t a morbid exercise, but a life-affirming study. The reader can learn to live each day fully, imbuing each hour with meaning and purpose. For humans to live with meaning, we must grow - grow until our lives lead us to grow through death, a transition in the journey of life eternal.
