Death as a thing has always fascinated us human beings since ages. More than life we are more curious about it. What else would you call when you see people having after death stories to narrate, wanting to experience past life, curious about when will they die, how will they die etc.  I to be honest am not curious about death, but yes life mystifies me. I have always wanted to learn more about it and this book seemed like a ready to read hand book on life.

The distance between your life and death is just one breath
 
About the author

Sadhguru is a Yogi, mystic and visionary.

Me thinks

The book’s format is like a questions and answers session with various questions on life and death being answered by Sadhguru. This format helps in easy reading as sometimes I would read the question I had in mind and then close the book to savour the meaning deep inside me. 

I was somehow not in a hurry to complete this book for reading it felt like having a conversation with an old friend. Discussing life, it’s various aspects, understanding the nuances and feeling like you have not even known it an ounce despite having spent so many decades on this earth.

That is the magic of Sadhguru’s words and his experiences of life leave you feeling perplexed as they push you to search for your own questions and answers on life. Some of the experiences shared had such depth that I was transported into a different state of mind where everything around me ceased to exist and all I could think of was the Oneness I shared with the Universe, the creator who gave me this life and would also give me death one day to experience.

A thoroughly enjoyable read and yes a definite to-be-read-again and again book for me!
