What IS death? The final good-bye? OR a transition FROM ONE LEVEL of existence TO the other? Most religions talk of an afterlife. IN fact, almost ALL concepts of morality are based ON what`s going to be meted out to us after we die. So, does that make death a moment of mourning, a sad occasion when we see our loved ones for the last time? Or is it a moment of celebration, when we prepare to break free of the mortal form and exhilarate in the communion with the eternal?
