Light and Ecstasy in Religious
and Near-Death Experiences

Brian A. Bain, B.A., M.A.



The human encounter with divine light and the ecstasy surrounding that encounter has been well documented. The major religions of the world have all recorded numerous accounts of this phenomenon. In the Western world today we find the same experience being reported by psychiatrists and their patients, and by people who have undergone "near-death" experiences. This provides us with a new foundation for approaching the subject of human spirituality: we find an experience which is common to people who are from entirely different cultures, and can be found throughout history.
