Once, a Lion's cub was raised among the lambs from the start of his birth. That Lion's cub when grew up, always thought himself to be a lamb only. Many times, that Lion was told about his true nature that he is the king among the animals but he always thought himself to be a lamb only. So, that Lion was an ignorant one, as he believed himself to be
someone different than his true self.

Similar to the above, is our situation as we are not able to see the true nature of our self (Soul nature) & the nature of this world. We always see our self to be this body but one day this body of ours shall perish. We don't believe that we are that Immortal Soul. But we are born again & again after death, as our Soul can never ever die. Our inner eye or intellect is covered with the dust of ignorance & we don't see things as it is. Our intelligence is covered with ignorance, just like a mirror is covered by the dust & we are not able to see our face properly in it.

We all need to introspect & see where our thinking is right in understanding of our self. Let's not cover our mind & intellect with a veil of ignorance but try to see things in right perspective. Below verse of Bhagwat Gita tells about how our mind & intellect is covered with the veil of ignorance. Let's clear this veil with the knowledge of the self (Soul) & see properly. Then you shall be able to see that you are that immortal Soul which is part & parcel of the Universal Soul (God). When you shall be firm in faith that you are that Immortal Soul, then death shall cease to exist for you as death is of a body & not yourself who is an Immortal Soul.

"dhumenavriyate vahnir
yathadarso malena cha
yatholbenavrto garbhas
tatha tenedam avrtam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Three verse 38)

"Sri Krishna said: As fire is covered by smoke, as a mirror is covered by dust, or as the embryo is covered by the womb, so the knowledge of living entity is similarly covered by different degrees of ignorance (desire)."

"na jayate mriyate va kadacin
nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah
ajo nityah sasvato ’yam purano
na hanyate hanyamane sarire" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 20)

"Sri Krishna said: The soul is never born nor dies at any time. Soul has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. Soul is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. Soul is not slain when the body is slain."

Just like alighting a small lamp eats away all the darkness in the room, so just by illumining your intellect with the knowledge, leads one to the true nature of yourself which is your Soul nature. So always think yourself to be that immortal, all powerful Soul.

Jai Sri Krishna
