Paranormal Experiences –Beyond the Realms of Reason

Author: Dr. Mehra Shrikhande

Publisher: Unicorn Books

This is no ordinary book. The rich research immediately makes you sit up straight, as if to draw you into a more attentive posture and force you to absorb as much  as you possibly can from the immense storehouse of logic that is set out to make an esoteric subject understandable. It is up to you, really, to truly benefit from the efforts of the author – or collapse into a heap from the efforts it demands of you. If you are a resilient reader, your rewards will far exceed your expectations.

Inexorably, you are drawn step by step into the physical, metaphysical and, thereafter,  common sense to expand the paranormal into ready-to- assimilate portions in an unbiased and objective manner. You are grateful that the author is a down-to-earth ophthalmic surgeon ingrained into the world of science. To savour a small sample from her book:

Sri Paramhansa Yogananda in his book Autobiography Of A Yogi, under the chapter Law Of Miracles, explains the relationship of relativity and quantum mechanics with certain metaphysical phenomena.

“Light velocity is a mathematical standard or constant not because there is an absolute value in 186,000 miles a second but because no material body, whose mass increases with the velocity, can ever attain the velocity of light. Stated another way, only a material body whose mass is infinite will equal the velocity of light.”

“Masters who are able to materialize and dematerialize their bodies and other objects and to move with the velocity of light and to utilize the creative light rays to bringing into instant visibility and physical manifestation have fulfilled the lawful condition: their mass in infinite.”

The book has many chapters ranging from Astral Plane, Near Death Experiences, Out Body Experiences, Ghosts (of Course) and reincarnation to Spirit Photography, Electronic Voice Presentation, Past Life Recall and ESP.

The views of both believers and skeptics are put forth in equal measure for a fair representation. You are left to judge, and either accept or reject as your beliefs dictate. The epilogue leaves you with a sense of having traversed the subject matter with a master guide who gently relinquishes your hand with the message: “Reality shall always, like God, remain mysterious, immeasurable, inexorable and beyond the realms of reason.”
