Two great truths govern human existence: impermanence is the law of the Universe and therefore it is inevitable, but the jeewatma (soul) is permanent and lives forever. When one views human existence from the perspective of this knowledge, then the only certitude is that there is no death. With the materialization of the Universe the wheel of time was set in motion, imprinting preordained impermanence. Yet, despite the world’s impermanence, Man is offered the opportunity of acquiring knowledge and achieving spiritual growth within his lifespan. The cosmic soul momentarily adopts a human body to experience advancement in human form. But when the jeewatma departs the physical body from one of the five koshas (sheaths), it is released from this confinement and bondage into the joyful revelation of its true nature. The soul experiences divine love and achieves a state of timelessness. The demise of the human body thus becomes the moment for joyful fulfillment – when the jeewatma achieves ultimate growth and eternal beauty. Though the human form and external body decays, the jeewatma or the subtle body/soul, remains intact in its true and original form. Litterateur Rajendra Kher has spent long years studying the subject of death. He has researched both ancient and modern references, as well as the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad-Gita, Srimad Bhagvatam and various mythological literature in his attempt to unravel and comprehend death and ‘life after life’. He has also analyzed the personal experiences of rishis, scholars, masters and yogis; adding his findings to the book to make it comprehensive. The gift contained in these pages is the lifting of the veil on death. In so doing, it frees each of us from unknown fears and dread about death and dying, enabling us to experience instead, true happiness and the grace of living.

Publisher: Oxford University Press
One of the most contentious and sensitive topics in criminal justice, Life after Life Imprisonment looks at the release and resettlement of life-sentenced offenders in England and Wales - where there are very few prisoners in the system for whom 'life' means life. By providing an in-depth analysis of the post-prison experiences of 138 discretionary life-sentenced offenders, all of whom were released during the mid-1990s, this book looks at the reality facing Lifers as they are released at some time during their sentences, usually on very long licences, to be closely monitored and supervised by probation officers. Using accessible and comprehensive data, it examines key legal developments within the criminal justice system for discretionary life-sentenced offenders, explores the frontline experiences of the probation officers charged with supervising life-sentenced offenders, and analyses the 'stories' or life narratives of a group of individuals who have committed some of the most serious crimes. It also examines the process of recall for life-sentenced prisoners and explores key factors associated with failure in the community. Of interest to legal scholars and criminologists, as well as practitioners in the field, Catherine Appleton's book offers a major insight into how societies respond to serious crime and identifies important elements of successful reintegration for released life-sentenced offenders.
