Dr Perera’s Rating:
An anaesthetist living the high life in the US suddenly becomes ill with prostate cancer. In this autobiography, Dr Rajiv Parti describes how – despite the best possible medical care – his condition worsened. What happened next would change the course of his entire life. In the midst of a surgery, he became moribund and ‘died’ on the operating table. During this time, Dr Parti experienced an incredible journey into another realm where he gained deep esoteric knowledge and understanding of human experience. The once driven entrepreneur became a sage, focused on sharing the knowledge he’d gained with others. He speaks of his own transformation and even the tumultuous problems he had with his son following his ‘enlightenment’, and ultimately how they resolved their differences. In the work Dr Parti also highlights the extreme materialism he sees in a certain group of medical professionals.
