Each day in the world passes by with innumerable births and deaths. The birth of someone brings joy to us; however, the death of someone is a painful event for all of us. However, everyone has to deal with the death of loved ones sometime during their lifetime. Whenever one faces the situation of death, one’s mind is filled with many questions such as why does one die? Where does one go after death? How can one overcome the grief? Why was I born? What is the purpose of my life and how am I going to fulfill it?
The Bhagavad Gita, the Timeless Wisdom of Universal Truth for the humankind not only answers these questions, but also helps to understand the meaning of birth, death, overcome the fear of death, live happily and peacefully; and still strive towards the Higher Purpose of life.
Lord Krishna says in Gita (“My questions God`s Answers”)
Spirit is eternal but the body is temporary
The Spirit (Soul) is neither born, nor ever dies. It does not come into being or cease to exist. It is unborn, eternal, permanent and ancient. Although the body is killed, the Spirit is not killed. (G. 2.20)
Death is unavoidable so learn to accept it
Death is certain for one who is born; birth too is certain for one who dies. Therefore, you should not grieve over this inevitable. (G. 2.26–27)
The Spirit moves from one body to the next body until it unites with Self-God.
It is the body, which is killed. Just as a person takes off worn-out garments and puts on new ones, similarly the embodied-soul casts off the worn-out body and enters into a new physical one. (G. 2.22)
One you focus on attaining the supreme goal of life, you will learn to know the meaning of birth and death.
Those who strive for freedom from the cycles of birth, old age, and death and take refuge in Me, they fully comprehend Brahman (Eternal Being, Self), the nature of Self, and the entire field of action (life and death). (G. 7.29)
Live in my consciousness and I will always be with you
While performing all of his activities, one who takes refuge in Me, by My grace attains the Supreme
Peace—the Eternal and Imperishable Abode (Parama-dhama). (G.18.56, 18.62) Birth, death and beyond
