The Theosophical Manual by Annie Besant helps us to face death more easily. Death and dying are the greatest human fears. Clearly and simply, Dr Besant explains that although the body perishes at death, Life survives. We are each a spark of the Divine Life that survives the dissolution of the gross body. Life is a conscious existence unbroken by death, and the soul that escapes from earthly life returns to its home in the spiritual realm. Our earthly life is but a means to spiritualize the material before we pass on to the life after death.
This useful book has been written for the busy men and women of the work-a-day world to make plain some of the great truths that render life easier to bear and death easier to face or accept.
