SACRED JOURNEY
-Living Purposefully and Dying Gracefully
By Swami Rama
Published by FULL CIRCLE
ISBN 81-7621-090-0

Death is certain, when is not certain. That is the frustrating part.

Hindus believe that death is merely a punctuation in a long journey of births and rebirths. One must attain moksha (release) to be discharged from this unending "samsara" (wanderings). Hindus do not fear death.

A devotee told Sai Baba that his (devotee's) mother had passed away. He expected sympathy and consolation from Baba. Instead, Baba wished him "sandosham" which literally would mean "happiness". The person was completely flummoxed by the unexpected response. He trod back to his seat muttering under his breath: "how could death be `sandosham'?" He probably did not grasp the significance of the term "sandosham" in the context of life and death.

Hindus believe that in death they are merely shedding their physical form. It is the "atma", the in-dweller that really matters. Atma is indestructible and lives on. Therefore, there should really be no tears at the side of a dying or dead person.

I am at best pea brains. I live within the limits of human vocabulary and intellect. It is difficult for me to articulate the metaphysics of death and thereafter.

Swami Rama's "Sacred Journey" was a welcome read. It shed some answers to my understanding of the fear that is attached to death. Sacred Journey is a contemplative book that wades through the relationship between purpose of life and its relationship with death. Life's goal is spiritual. By that it does not mean "escaping from the world" (pg 86) but to enjoy the things of the world (pg 149). The caveat is not to get attached to them.

I really enjoyed this book. Though it's short, it's full of deep meaning. I've read books by Swami Rama before and he's always thought provoking. Besides, I really liked the cover. I know the red and the sandals will always catch my eye, and I've already promised to give it to a friend to read.

Swami Rama knows what he is talking about. I will read this little treasure again and again. His wisdom speaks to the spirit hidden deep in man, the last place most humans would look to find God.

Swami Rama has dealt with the subject with his characteristic depth of understanding born out of his own realization . He has described Kathopnishad in modern scientific language .
