About The Book

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 his most 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 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 “spiritual wake-up call” (Suzanne Giesemann, author of Messages of Hope), Dr. Parti provides rare details of heaven, hell, the afterlife, and angels and offers you the opportunity to attain peace and live a better life here on Earth.

"Healed by his near-death experience, Dr. Rajiv Parti has become a healer himself—a true doctor of the soul.

– Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., author of Lessons from the Light

– Larry Merrill, Facilitator, IANDS, Mesa, Arizona

“Dr. Rajiv Parti’s experience of consciousness was one of the most profound I have heard. He traveled from hell to heaven, and learned what life is really about. Dr. Parti has much to teach us about the meaning of life and why we are here.”

– Ellie Schamber, Ph.D., Leader of Marin IANDS

“Dr. Parti’s story is extraordinary, not just because his near-death experience was so profound and evidential, but because as a physician, he links science and spirit in an account that bridges both worlds.”

– Terri Daniel, Founder of the Death Awareness Institute and The Afterlife Conference

"Dying to Wake Up serves as a spiritual wake-up call. Far more than the riveting account of a Near Death Experience, Rajiv Parti's powerful story is filled with wisdom and Truth that speaks directly to the soul."

– Suzanne Giesemann, evidence-based medium and author of Messages of Hope and Wolf's Message
