About The Author

Are we eventually reborn again in a physical body after death? Does the soul pass on another body after leaving the physical body? Is there any connection Self realisation and rebirth? There are many questions in relation to reincarnation which need to be understood logically and reationally, before the doctrine of reincarnation can take hold and become part of a persons life.

The ability to commune with the self is in all humans, but its degree of existence is not the same in everyone. This difference is reasonably understood and explained if one accepts the theory of reincarnation. The peculiar nature and the attributes which characterise rebirth prevent anyone from proving it completely if one uses using normal thinking and sense perception.

However, its acceptance helps us to understand our evolution, history, capacity, inequalities of characteristics. our habits and also find a reasonable answer to the question why we are here on Earth. Sri Ramana Maharishi once stated ‘This body has birth and death and when this body falls another body arises which is called reincarnation. But are you the body? If you find that you are not this body but the spirit, you will be free gross or subtle bodies, and then there will be no limitations.’ Merits outweighing demerits, the subtle bodies go to heavens and are then reborn here; demerits outweighing merits, they go to hells and are afterwards reborn here. AYogabrashta ( one who has slipped from the yoga) is said to fare in the same manner. All these are nor death. One remains only as what one really is. This is the only Truth.’

The author of this book Sri Anil Sharma was born in Ambala, a small town in north India in March 1958. He graduated as an electrical enginer in 1980 from Delhi University, after which he travelled for a period of three years throughout the length and breath of the Indian subcontinent. In search of wisdom in search of truth, reflections of which can be seen in the book. The author currently resides in Australia and works in his profession, but will continue to serve humanity in the form of such books and writings. 


Life does not end with sleep, but continues when one is awake. So too Life does not end with death, but continues into the regions beyond death. Nothing really dies though everything experiences a change of form and activity. This book gives an overview of the superphysical regions that are entered at the time of death, and assists to formulate a kind of mapping of the route which one follow upon leaving the physical world at death.

As the great Sage Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi stated’ …pramada (forgetfulness of Self) … is the cause of birth and death… the impure mind which functions as thinking and forgetting, alone is samasara (the state of mundane activity or worldly existence) , which is the cycle of birth and death … The ego is described as having three bodies, the gross, the subtle and the causal, but that is only for the purpose of analytical exposition… The ego,s phenomenal existence is transcended when you dive into the source from where the ‘I –thought rises.’


Sage Sri Ramana Maharishi taught that an essential aspect of knowing and experiencing our reality of self-awarness is the ego needs to subside, and then we become aware of our reality which is always shining forth. An important aspect of subsidence of this personal feeling of ‘me’ in us to gain an understanding of why this feeling of ‘me’ exists in us and its function. Once one knows and fully understands a particular phenomenon, like the individual feeling of ‘me’ in us, it is an effort in the right direction; it’ll no longer continue to trouble us anymore. Sri Anil Sharma is a devoted follower of Sage Sri Ramana Maharishi, who undertook an in depth study and also personally experienced through meditation the life of the ‘ego’ at the physical and other planes of phenomenal existence, as mentioned by Sri Ramana Maharishi while answering the many questions about reincarnation and rebirth put to him by his many questions about reincarnation and rebirth put to him by his followers in search of reality. He came across the teachings of the Sage Sri Ramana Maharishi in the year 2000, and since has gained knowledge and experience of our reality as Self-awareness.

I am happy to recommend this book for reading and general knowledge in relation to the life of the ego on the physical plane and beyond, written by him just prior to coming across the teachings of Sri. Ramana Maharshi and taking him on as his sat-Guru.
