A SECOND CHANCE :- As the sinful Ajamila lay on his deathbed, he was terrified to see three fierce humanlike creatures coming to drag him out of his dying body and take him away to the abode of Yamaraja, the lord of death, for punishment.Surprisingly, Ajamila escaped this terrible fate. How? You'll find out in the pages of A Second Chance: The Story of a Near-Death Experience.You'll also learn many vital truths about the fundamental nature of the self and reality, so you can better prepare yourself for your own inevitable encounters with death and dying.Even today, people momentarily on the verge of death report encounters like Ajamila's, lending credibility to the idea that there is life after death.In 1982, GeorgeGallup, Jr., published a book called Adventures in Immortality, which contained results of asurvey on American beliefs about the afterlife, including near-death and out-of-body experiences.
Thousands of years ago in India, the history concerning Aj?mila and his near-death experience was related by the great spiritual master ?ukadeva Gosv?m? to his disciple King Par?k?it. Their conversation is recorded in the Sixth Canto of the Sanskrit classic ?r?mad-Bh?gavatam, renowned as the ripened fruit of the tree of India’s timeless Vedic literature.
In 1975?76, in the course of translating the ?r?mad-Bh?gavatam into English, ?r?la Prabhup?da translated the story of Aj?mila. And as with the rest of the work, in addition to the text he provided an illuminating commentary on each verse.
