Near death experience

Why are we so fascinated with near death experiences (NDEs)? Certainly they are a curiosity and something beyond normal experience, but it seems to be more than that. Out-of-body experiences, premonitions and other psychic experiences are numerous but they do not have the notoriety of the NDE. There are not so many best-selling books or lecture tours about the other types of phenomena. Death, however, does seem to get our attention since we are all headed in that direction. Moreover, although the NDE reports are so varied in detail that we cannot get a clear picture, the NDE does give important clues to the basic questions of life. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Am I condemned for past mistakes? Are my loved ones forever lost to me?

Our relationship with death defines for us the meaning of life. If there is no existence beyond the grave, then we are more tempted to “eat, drink, and be merry.” But if our consciousness continues on without the physical body, then we may be facing major consequences beyond this earthly sojourn. Religious traditions can promise us anything from going to that great hunting-ground in the sky, to being thrown into the fiery lakes of hell for all eternity. The implications of our demise can lift us high or cast us into the doldrums.

In the Buddhist tradition, preparing for the moment of death is a major practice. Over some period of time the practitioner visualises his or her death with all the trimmings – funeral, decay, impermanence. While this may sound morbid to our western ears, the exercise can do much to shake the foundations of the grasping, anxiety-ridden ego. In doing so, it creates an opening in the psyche for a fuller, happier life with less impelling attachments.
