A narrative account of history and myth that offers a new way of understanding one of the world's oldest major religions, this book elucidates the relationship between recorded history and imaginary worlds. Hinduism does not lend itself easily to a strictly chronological account: many of its central texts cannot be reliably dated; its central tenets--karma, dharma, to name just two--arise at particular moments in Indian history and differ in each era, between genders, and caste to caste; and what is shared among Hindus is overwhelmingly outnumbered by the things that are unique to one group or another. Yet the greatness of Hinduism--its vitality, its earthiness, its vividness--lies precisely in many of those idiosyncratic qualities that continue to inspire debate today. Wendy Doniger, one of the world's foremost scholars of Hinduism, illuminates those moments within the tradition that resist forces that would standardize or establish a canon.--From publisher description.

Death is not the end. In fact, your loved ones who have passed are watching you, helping you, and healing you?though you may not know it. In this highly emotional book, lifelong intuitive Sue Frederick takes you through the process of connecting with the other side to: *Use your intuition to understand that your loved ones are at peace, *See into the other side to feel and release your pain, *Help loved ones cross over, *Use your own birth path number to discover what obstacles you might have on this journey and how to overcome them, *Understand a bigger view of spirituality and what happens after life, and so much more. Filled with heartwarming, reassuring stories of Sue?s own experiences and those of others, Bridges to Heaven is a landmark book about grief, death, and life.
Science may be unable to ?prove? that there is life (or something else) after death, but countless people continue to experience these unexplained coincidences when a loved one dies, while others experience such visions while they are dying themselves. Prompted by her family?s surprising, profound experiences around the deaths of her father and her sister, the hyper-rational Pearson sets out on an open-minded inquiry and discovers that roughly half of bereaved persons?as well as nurses, hospice workers, soldiers, and others who constantly observe the dying?have had uncanny, transcendent experiences. These intimations of enduring bonds can radically help people process their grief and their fear. Opening Heaven?s Door recounts deeply affecting stories of messages from the dying and the dead in a fascinating work of investigative journalism, pointing to new scientific explanations that give these luminous moments the importance felt by those who experience them.
