We all know that this body of ours shall perish or die in future. But is there life after death also? Can we survive after death also? Are we different from this body & shall we survive death? Yes, as per ‘Bhagwat Gita’, it’s so. As per ‘Bhagwat Gita’, we in essence are different than this body & we in essence are that indestructible ‘Soul’ & this ‘Soul’ is there in our body even when we are living right now. As per ‘Bhagwat Gita -Chapter Two Verse – 22’, our body is like our clothes that we wear on our body & after death these worn out clothes are dropped by the embodied soul . You in essence are a ‘Soul’ & this ‘Soul’ of yours shall wear another body ( read, shall wear another pair of clothes) after death. So this eternal Soul which is indestructible, changes its present embodied form for another embodied form, when the physical body perishes.
As per ‘Bhagwat Gita-Chapter Two Verse – 20’, eternal soul was there always & was there even before this ‘World creation’. This soul is never born nor does it die ever. It is an indestructible substance. So if we have a firm belief that we are that eternal Soul which never dies then we shall also feel to be someone beyond this body & fear of death shall go away from our mind as then we shall know that we have life even after the death. Yes, we all are that immortal Soul & shall never die. Have firm faith in these words & all your fears of death shall go away in thin air.
