About this product
- DescriptionIn Immortality And Reincarnation, the author examines Taoist, Tibetan, and Hindu concepts concerning life after death. This question of what occurs to the individual personality after death is fundamental to the human experience. Contrary to Western belief, which sees the human being as composed of a mortal body and an immortal soul, many Easterners believe on the immortality of both the body and the soul. Famed traveller and mystic, Alexandra David-Neel (1868-1969), was the first Western woman to see the forbidden city of Lhasa, Tibet and to interview the 13th Dalai Lama. She has gained first hand kwledge of Easterners' beliefs on this subject of immortality, and has experience of the practices they engendered. In Immortality And Reincarnation, she ties together all her kwledge and experiences for a unique look at reincarnation and eternal life in a region untouched by the modern world.
