Our culture perceives death as pain, suffering, misery and sorrow. Much immersed in the struggle with life, we miss one of the greatest mysteries , the huge transformation of death. In different cultural traditions throughout the world we can distinguish two main lines – the Western world and the Eastern world. As representatives of the Western world in our cultural heritage, we do not understand and fear of death. For us, death is shrouded with fear and deception. Many scientists exploring the human psyche as C.G. Jung, Nietzsche, Erich Fromm, and scientists exploring the world and the wonders of the universe, mysterious figures themselves, like Tesla, Einstein, Stephen Hawkins – all draw knowledge and inspiration from the eastern ancient texts and doctrines like Upanishads, Sutras, Shastras, Vedas, Tantra – and all this is YOGA. And in Eastern philosophy Death is not considered final end and is accepted as a process of transformation.
