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.
