The Story of a Near-Death Experience
The amazing narrative of Ajamila’s transforming near-death experience is chronicled in Srimad-Bhagavatam. In this book based on that narrative, Srila Prabhupada shows us how we can employ the techniques of mantra meditation and bhakti-yoga to overcome the obstacles of materialism, meet the challenge of death, and ultimately attain spiritual perfection.
As the sinful Ajamila lay on his deathbed, he was terrified to see three fierce humanlike creatures coming to drag him out of his dying body and take him away to the abode of Yamaraja, the lord of death, for punishment.Surprisingly, Ajamila escaped this terrible fate. How? You’ll find out in the pages of A Second Chance. You’ll also learn many vital truths about the fundamental nature of the self and reality, so you can better prepare yourself for your own inevitable encounters with death and dying. Even today, people momentarily on the verge of death report encounters like Ajamila’s, lending credibility to the idea that there is life after death.
The history of Ajamila is dramatic, powerful, and engaging. And the sharp philosophical and metaphysical debates that punctuate the action as Ajamila confronts the messengers of death and finds deliverance are bound to excite the interest of those concerned with life’s deepest questions.
