Today I am here to share a verse from the Indian Scripture “Bhagavad Gita” (The Songs of the Absolute/God). It is from chapter 2 and verse number 20.
na jāyate mriyate vā kadāchin
nāyaṁ bhūtvā bhavitā vā na bhūyaḥ
ajo nityaḥ śhāśhvato ’yaṁ purāṇo
na hanyate hanyamāne śharīre
Neither born nor ever dies
Nor having been does it ever come not to be
Unborn, Eternal, Perpetual
Not destroyed when the body is
This verse is spoken by the “God” Krishna, who talks about the “Soul” which is never born and not destroyed when the body is.
Personal Remarks: Often times, we forget our true nature – we think we are this body, we think we are this mind, and sadly we think we are the thoughts created by the mind – if we stop and look deeply, it is easier for us to understand that all of these aforementioned phenomenon are prone to change every single moment.
Well, there is nothing wrong in assuming we are this changing phenomenon but we have to be careful about not getting imprisoned by these mental afflictions, so as to live at peace and do our daily duties without anxieties and/or worries.
I am a Soul, and I am ever Free.
