Q. I have always been afraid of death and dying. What will happen to me when I die, according to the teachings of Madame Blavatsky and the Masters presented in Theosophy? What did they say about it?
A. First of all, there is nothing to worry about. You will never die. The only part of you which will actually die when the change or transition commonly known as “death” takes place is the physical body…and this is nothing more than your outer shell anyway.
The famous poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye says in part – “Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep…do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die.”
The true “I” of your being will never die.
Every action, good or bad, is a prolific parent, saith the Wisdom of the Ages.”
~ H.P. Blavatsky, The Key to Theosophy, p. 141 ~
The following is an excerpt from p. 197-217 of “The Key to Theosophy” by H.P. Blavatsky. It comes from the eleventh chapter or section, titled “ON THE MYSTERIES OF RE-INCARNATION.” 
Q. “You mean, then, that we have all lived on earth before, in many past incarnations, and shall go on so living?”
A. “I do. The life-cycle, or rather the cycle of conscious life, begins with the separation of the mortal animal-man into sexes, and will end with the close of the last generation of men, in the seventh round and seventh race of mankind.
“KARMA, TANHA and SKANDHAS, are the almighty trinity in one,H.P. Blavatsky Art and the cause of our re-births. The illustration of painting our own present likeness at death, and that likeness becoming the future personality is very poetical and graphic, but we claim it as an occult teaching. At the solemn moment of death no man can fail to see himself under his true colours, and no self-deception is of any use to him any longer. Thence the following thing happens. As at the instant of drowning man sees marshalled past his mind’s eye the whole of his life, with all its events, effects and causes, to the minutest details, so at the moment of death, he sees himself in all his moral nakedness, unadorned by either human flattery or self-adulation, and, as he is; hence, as he or rather, as his astral double combined with his Kama principle – shall be.

It is hard to believe, but true nevertheless, that no-one in the Western world had heard of Karma, or knew the slightest thing about it, until only 130 years ago when Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Movement introduced the concept of Karma – along with other distinctly Eastern teachings such as reincarnation and the Oneness and Divinity of all life – to the West. Karma was literally a foreign concept to begin with but its truth and reality were swiftly perceived by many and eventually the word and the basic idea behind it entered into the mainstream.

The following, among others not yet used, were given to me by teachers, among them being H.P. Blavatsky. Some were written, others communicated in other ways. To me they were declared to be from manuscripts not now accessible to the general public. Each one was submitted for my judgment and reason; and just as they, aside from any authority, approved themselves to my reason after serious consideration of them, so I hope they will gain the approval of those my fellow workers to whom I now publish them.
