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.

    Story
    "Materialist experiences Spiritual wake up call"

    This is a very easy listen, the personal story of a very materialist science-type getting a paranormal wake up call. The "what goes around comes around" message is woven throughout as Dr. Parti recognizes that pattern in (t)his life.

    His Near Death Experience (NDE), which is also an Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), is fascinating and very detailed. Dr. Parti tells the story so that a first time reader about NDE gets a good introduction and overall explanation. Yet, his personal experience and the message given is unique to readers already familiar with pther NDE, OBE and Past Life books.

    The book itself is an awakening experience. How deep and far depends on the listeners - methods for inner exploration and meditations are shared within the story, but we have to do our own work. Dr. Parti is working on a new method of healing with Consciousness and that part is a little nebulous. It doesn't come in a prescription bottle.

    Story
    "Dr. Parti has given us a gift!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dying to Wake Up to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Dying to Wake Up?

    How wonderful that Dr. Parti has shared his NDE with us! He has such incredible courage (as does his wife) to opt for a radical life change - 180-degree turn - so we all may glean from his lessons.

    "Absolutely astonishing!"

    I loved every moment of this book! Being a student of 'A Course In Miracles,' I found this book to be extremely insightful! The entire experience of the author became an experience of my own. What a brilliant prospective and colorful picture the author paints. A true example of being amongst minister's of God. Anyone and everyone should read this book. The narration was perfection. An absolute standing ovation. Bravo, namaste and brotherly love.

    Story
    "I give it 4 and a half stars really..."
    If you could sum up Dying to Wake Up in three words, what would they be?

    Mesmerizing, Spiritual, Truth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything but it needs a part 2 so we get to find out how things go.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dying to Wake Up is perfect already.


    Any additional comments?

    What happens next?

    "Great book I highly recommend it"

    I know about NDE's however I held back because must of them seemed to always happened to Christian people or someone deeply religious. However THIS IS NOT THE CASE. His experience has helped him to become a better person. By sharing his NDE he shares the message of GOD. Overall a great book with a lot a meaningful lessons we all need.
