From the Jacket:
This book deals with the comparative study of different problems of life beyond death and with the different philosophical and psychological enquiries about God, the Soul and the World, together with his personal mystical experience in the field of spiritual sadhana.
It has ably unlocked the mystery of the mystic dialogue between Yama, the Ruler of Death and Nachiketa by giving the best rational explanations, based upon the Upanishadic view point and scientific discoveries.
