Beyond Birth and Death


This small book by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda gives information about how one can be elevated from the intellectual understanding that he is not the body to how to attain the Personal Abode of the Supreme Lord, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, in loving relationship to that Supreme Personality. Śrīla Prabhupāda expertly presents the reality of the situation of the soul on the Earthly plane of birth, death and various other miserable conditions, what the options are upon leaving this body depending on how the consciousness is developed, and eventually, how to transcend the entire material creation, with all its various life forms and planets, and return to the eternal, joyful Kingdom of God through accepting the process of devotional service to the Supreme Lord, Śrī Kṛṣṇa. This book, in five short chapters, with potent quotes from supporting transcendental literatures and previous teachers in the authorized devotional lineages, is a summary study that stresses the importance of remembering the Supreme Personality of Godhead. It delineates the glorious result of being willing to apply ourselves to the devotional process, especially to the chanting of the mahā-mantra, Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare.
