Synopsis: : The Great Mystery of Life Beyond Death Reprint
Sir Arthur Conan d/sir-arthur" Title="sir-arthur">Sir Arthur sm has attracted many amateurs as mediums and these have tried to give to the World some idea of spirits. On the other hand, many would like to think Spirits as ghosts which are described in fiction; but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, renowned in his lifetime as an author and spiritualist, as a spirit, can assure the readers that a ghost is an 'elemental' and therefore not a spirit. Spirits have no body, nor any shape; they are a mere energy as distinguished from mere conception.
The entire book, as the author states, had been dictated to him on the Ouija Board-the most current system of spirit-communication, which makes it possible to have A Good talk with the desired spirit-by the spirit of Sir Doyle.
In its nine chapters, the Book discusses death, carriage, the great trial, the seven stages, rebirth, life of a spirit, bonds with the world, its powers and disabilities, and the final goal.
Prof. Hiralal L. Kaji was a senior advocate of the supreme court and a first-rate tax lawyer of clarity and integrity. He was also a member of the Indian Education Service. His sincerity and veracity are patent. He laid no claim to supernatural powers, extrasensory perception or even a deep knowledge of the subject, and he disclaimed all responsibility for the views expressed herein.

"Death, I confess, is too deep an issue to dispel the dread and darkness in the minds of men merely by reading a revelatory book from the great Conan Doyle, communicated through late Hiralal L. Kaji. Even so, we must invade ignorance and illumine the subject stage by stage. From that perspective, "The Great Mystery of Life Beyond Death" is an invaluable start. - V.R. Krishna lyer
"I can assure the readers that this is the genuine work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and that it is a nearly correct exposition of the most mysterious secret of human life." - Shree Yama Raj
