Death: An Inside Story by Sadhguru [Book Review]



Death: An Inside Story
By Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

No matter which nationality, faith, belief, profession or gender we identify ourselves with, the only certainty that stands unchallenged is that we are all going to die. And the year 2020 has been a strong revelation of this fact.

Few days ago, I started reading the popular book 'Death: An Inside Story' by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, which is an undertaking to explore the realm of death and the various concepts associated with it.

A word of caution before you start reading the book: no matter how fantastic, crazy, or tempting it may seem to accept what has been written, it is upto each one of us to discover it for ourselves as the author himself highlights this in the book and elsewhere.

The content may come across as highly unsettling and depressing but one must take in as much possible in one reading for the effort to be worthwhile.

Some concepts may seem to be in congruence with traditional and popular beliefs in India but the narrative is an exploration of the author's own seeking. 

The sequence of chapters cover multiple aspects of death: physiological, psychological, logical, and the rest. One must be cautious while treading this line of thought and have ample amount of skepticism. Avoiding this precaution may lead to hallucinations or fears, which are certainly self-created.

One striking feature is the way in which the narrative unfolds, sometimes making you forget the demarcation between chapters, somewhat like the blurred boundaries between what we think are life and death.
