Publisher's Summary

A rare glimpse into heaven, hell, and previous lives - Dr. Rajiv Parti's near-death experience brought him on a journey through the afterworld, leading to a spiritual awakening that transformed his career, his lifestyle, and even his fundamental beliefs. Before his near-death experience, Dr. Rajiv Parti was a wealthy man of science with a successful career as the Chief of Anesthesiology at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital in California. He demanded the same success from his son, whose failures provoked episodes of physical abuse from Dr. Parti.

All in all, Dr. Parti was the last man to believe in heaven or hell - that is, until he saw them with his own eyes. When Dr. Parti had his near-death experience on the operating table, he first watched his own operation from the ceiling - even recalling a joke told by his doctors during his surgery. He was greeted by archangels and his deceased father who led him through the tortures of hell and revealed the toxic cycle of violence that has plagued his family for generations. He even reviewed the struggles of his previous lives which, in many ways, reflected those he still faced in the present.

Finally, he experienced heaven. From the angels, he learned lessons of spiritual health that they insisted he bring down to earth - to do so, Dr. Parti knew he had to change his ways. After his near-death experience, Dr. Parti awoke a new man. He gave away his mansion, quit his career, opened a wellness clinic, and completely turned around his relationships with his family. To this day, he still converses with angels and spreads their wisdom to the living.

In this remarkable true story of spiritual transformation, Dr. Parti provides rare details of heaven, hell, the afterlife, and angels. In sharing the lessons and eternal truths from the Divine that changed him forever, Dr. Parti offers his audience the opportunity to attain peace and live a better life here on Earth.

    "Profound and life changing."

    This is one of those rare books that not only totally captivates the reader, but also transforms you as you read. I loved this book and have no doubt that what he has experienced was real. It makes you re assess and question your own life and for me it was if I was having the experiences with him. This was recommended to me by a mentor and it did not disappoint. A must read for anyone seeking answers about life and death, energy workers or those questioning their own existence.

    "I don't think so"

    The best that can be said of this audiobook is that the author is using a fictional narrative as a vehicle for promoting a distinctly unoriginal self-help philosophy. I've read hundreds of NDE experiences and many are reported honestly and have a ring of truth about them, regardless of whether there is any objective truth to their content, but this is not the case here. It stands out amongst NDE accounts not for its detail but for its remarkable resemblance to fantasy fiction rolled out by a wholly inexperienced writer.

    No sooner has Mr Parti disappeared through the ceiling of the operating theatre than the barrage of cliched, saccharine anecdotes of self-examination begin, from making up with his dead father by understanding his motivations in mentally abusing him as a child to apologising to a bunch of farmers he beat up in a previous life. Soon after (although not soon enough) he is floated into the archetypal sweet-smelling green meadow by the Archangels Gabriel and Michael, who tell bad jokes and exchange banter about social workers. He continues on to meet a being of blue light that chats to him like a best mate down the pub and, on occasion, 'chuckles telepathically'. It was not long after this point I decided I could take no more. Life's too short, as it were. If you're desperate to believe in each and every feel-good tale of the afterlife, no matter how ludicrous, then give it a go, otherwise don't waste your money.

    "Enlightening"

    This book is a must for those that seek answers to the life before and beyond. We are made of love, love is all we need. A wonderful journey.
