Excerpts from Easy Death
Avatar Adi Da's Graceful Help relative to the death process occurs not only through the Instruction He offers, but also in terms of His direct Spiritual transformation of His devotee and His influence on what would otherwise be the devotee's destiny at death.
Easy Death is full of stories of His Blessing and Regard — easing the dying individual, and his or her loved ones, and Calling them to the Perfect Happiness that transcends death in every moment. Following are some excerpts from such stories.
