Man's special stature in the Universe is based on his ability to think, to reason, to question the surface appearances of life. This particular quality, a form of inner mental debate with himself, is a means by which he intensifies his evolution and at the same time it becomes a stumbling block in his progress, because the answers he seeks are so profound they lie beyond the boundaries of the ordinary mind. The author takes up some of the questions that have besieged mankind's Intellect for ages: what happens at the moment of death, what is death's real nature, how to conquer the fear of death, and how fate, Karma and rebirth act in and on the life of the ordinary man and the man who has become a Spiritual aspirant. He explores these subjects in the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, who have written and spoken from their own Knowledge and experience of these domains, and offers the reader a new understanding of the mysteries of death, fate, karma, and rebirth.
