Talk: Life's Final Exam

In this talk, Giriraj Swami presents some of the experiences of people who left their bodies in a heightened state of consciousness so that we can use those valuable insights to make the best out of the rest of our lives. As a friend of Giriraj said shortly before his death, “When you get this close to death, you see that it is not what you thought. All our life we fear it, but when you are this close, you see that it is not the end; it is a portal to opportunities beckoning us, beyond which we are able to see our true existence and nature—that we are all actually entities that don’t pass away.”
