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.

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.

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.

Unremarkable

Dr, Parti's entire NDE struck a discordant note that I could not at first identify; finally, I realized that his story was similar to other accounts of NDE, except his was a little off in several respects. His sightings of deceased loved ones, for instance, were oddly different from those of other ND experiencers, and his responses were ... strange. He seemed to be writing about a thirdhand event in someone else's life, and getting it not quite right.
His decision, upon returning to this earthly plane, comes across as oddly selfish. He didn't really consult his wife before shedding his rich lifestyle, just kept leaning on her to go along with his plans until she acquiesced.
His whole account seems not really believable.

Rescued

A wonderful story but frequently began losing me time after time from canned performance. Rescued repeatedly by the interesting content of the story.

Best audio book ever

This audio book is one of the best story I have ever heard. It was written beautifully and I was so wrapped in the story that I felt I was with the author throughout . It made me think of my own life how I am living with material things. I have learned so much on how to treat others feelings before my own. I'm sure I will listen to this audio book over and over. Thank you Rajiv Parti for sharing your story.

Very very informative. Great job by Doctor Rajiv.

Simply excellent. Very much motivational and highly spiritual. I must have read about 15 writers but this is the most simple and effective. Thank you very much Doc.

Loved it! Gift it.

Story was well written and the narrator was best that I have ever experienced. Highly recommend.
Enjoyed so much that I gave books to sisters for Christmas. Big sister said that she couldn't put it down. She recommended it to a friend today.

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.
