10 stories of people having supernatural experiences after dying and then coming back to life.
In the theosophical septenary constitution of the human being, the seven are grouped into the upper triad (Atma-buddhi-manas) and a lower quaternary, consisting of the physical body, prana (vital energy), LINGA-SARIRA (the astral double), KAMA-RUPA (desire body). Later theosophical writers re-classified the lower quaternary as the physical body, etheric double, astral body (kama-rupa) and the lower mental body. This lower quaternary constitutes the mortal personality that perishes in stages after each incarnation. Only the upper triad remains which later will gather unto itself a new personality when it incarnates again.
