Easwaran sheds light on the perennial questions of time, desire, the nature of the mind, and the realization that the body is only the jacket of the soul, and that in death the body dies, but the person does not. The Undiscovered Country shows there is no real death, only passage.
"Where have I come from? What will happen to me when I die? What is life for? Is death inevitable?" Spurred by these great questions, we seek the supreme discovery - our immortality. This is the universal message of mysticism: Complete understanding of our eternal, spiritual nature can be realized while we are here on earth, in this life."
