"Death cannot be denied by repeating that death does not exist. Death will have to be known, it will have to be encountered, it will have to be lived. You will have to become acquainted with it." --Osho
Why are we afraid of death? How do I relax in the certainty of death? Is the theory of reincarnation true? How can I celebrate death as you suggest? With depth, clarity, compassion, and even humor, Osho answers these questions and many others, shedding new light on this most sacred of mysteries and providing practical guidance for meditation and support.
In The Art of Living and Dying, Osho not only reveals that our fear of death is based on a misunderstanding of its nature, but that dying is a tremendous opportunity for inner growth. Death is not an event but a process--and one that begins with birth. Each exhalation is a small death; each inhalation, a rebirth. When life is lived consciously and totally, death is not a catastrophe but a joyous climax.
