3. Life after death
The last organ to die, according to the Mahatma Letters (ML), is the brain. At the moment of death, a person recalls their entire life in a span of a few seconds. “The dying brain dislodges memory with a strong supreme impulse…. That impression and thought which was the strongest naturally becomes the most vivid and survives so to say all the rest which now vanish and disappear forever, to reappear but in Devachan.” (ML 93B)
This recall has been affirmed by recent researches conducted on near-death experiences, such as those of Dr. Raymond Moody. The last dominant thoughts of a person will determine the “life principle” of one’s future existence, and the nature of these thoughts will depend upon the predominant character during the person’s life.
