    And some who know of a consciousness without a body will have absolutely no fear at all. And those who didn't pay attention, will have a bardo of confusion and terror without the stable continuity of consciousness of their human body.

    rohanfelix, you are right, Sri Krishna says in Geeta that one of the ways to know him to perform all actions in His name only and this way a person attains an immense peace in his /her life. Thank you very much for reminding such a beautiful verse.

    "....one may very likely be forever left in a very blissful, perhaps heaven-like, moment. ...." how boring! Have you ever considered what life would be without the challenges, the successes and failures? These are what MAKE life heaven.

    To admit our ignorance is far better than to be hypnotized by deceptive words. Once we accept it,our journey starts in the right direction as we make sincere and valid efforts. We do not get caught in the different webs of flowery and vain language.

    So TRUE, we are dealing with the question being alive.Post death is just out of our reach but man is a terrible being and want to fathom the most impossible and the most abstract aspect affecting his existence.

    Peanutroaster , words are just like consolation and it does not eradicate fear from our minds the least. When the skin burns if touched with fire, burning gives pain but by merely saying that do not think about burning, pain does not go away.

    So beautifully you described the reasons of fear lurking in our mind. As regards death, there is another view that we face death everyday that we call sleep, a death for a short period where we forget everything what we are as in awakening state.

    Tusitala Tom, your response is very thoughtful and it will take some time to digest it. What I myself feel is that like the sleep we experience daily, we will experience a final sleep and surely we won't like to be disturbed in such a happy state.

    Glib answer, given by a christian-believing person, applied to everyone.....

    As a personal statement, about yourself, Melanie, that is fine....but not applicable to everyone.

    Steel Engineer, being alien to Christianity , I assume that when we recognize Jesus as the son of God, we inculcate in us his august being and thus redeem ourselves. In other words we imbibe the true spirit of his holy words. Is my thinking right ?
