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 better lives here on earth.

Contemplating God and the after life that awaits .

I am a retired surgeon and I found the story ( and advice of Dr Parti) very fascinating and affirming of my own experiences dealing with patients dying of cancer . I have personally helped bring back patients who were without a pulse and there is no doubt in my mind that there is a loving God with an amazing afterlife awaiting all of us.

Uplifting and enjoyable

I enjoyed listening to this particular recalling and sharing of an NDE because of the exploration of past lives, which is not as common. His message was uplifting and motivating. I like the lists and short bullet points for meditation or thoughts to keep it simple and clear. The narration was done very well also.

Incredible story

An amazing recount of his story to the other side. To shift one’s life completely as a leap in the dark and come out as Rajiv has done is inspirational.
