Deepak shares his reflections on Death and shows us how coming to terms with our own beliefs about it can liberate us. The key to finding surrender at the moment of death is discovering our true self, which is formless, infinite, inconceivable.

By becoming aware of our futile beliefs about death and transcending them, we can set ourselves free.
