- The Bhagavad Gita 2.20 said,
- ‘For the soul there is neither
- Birth nor death at any time.
- He has not come into being,
- Does not come into being,
- And will not come into being.
- He is unborn, eternal, everlasting and primeval.
- He is not slain when the body is slain.’
- Socrates said,
- ‘I am confident that there truly
- Is such a thing as living again
- And that the living spring from the dead.’
- Koran said,
- ‘And you were dead, and
- He brought you back to life.
- And he shall cause you to die,
- And shall bring you back to life,
- And in the end
- Shall gather you unto Himself’
- A famous ‘Sufi’ of Islam, Jalalu’ D-Din Rumi said,
- ‘I died as a mineral and become a plant,
- I died as a plant and rose to be an animal,
- I died as an animal and I was a man,
- Why should I fear?
- When was I less by dying?’
- Individual soul may be compared
- To a spark emanating from
- The fire of the supreme God
- One must have faith in God
- Rely on God’s help
- Unify with God in order
- To restore the soul
- To its original eternal source.
