Is there Life after death?

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.

What 'Bhagwat Gita' is all about?

If anyone tells you that you do not know yourself, your immediate reaction shall be , what? what are you talking?, I am so & so & who else can know more about myself? May be what you are saying is true but fact is that we do not know ourselves. In this context, if someone asks you, where you were before death or where you shall go after death, your answer can be either, 'you do not know' or you shall say , 'I neither existed before death or shall exist after death, whatever, I am , I am here during this existence of mine on this earth only'. Again , you may be right or you may be wrong.

How to decide about the truth about all such matters? In Hindu religion, 'Bhagwat Gita' is one of the most sacred books of Hindus. It teaches people about all such matters in detail. Not only that, it teaches , how one should lead one's day to day life on earth. All men , irrespective of caste & creed possess the right to study the 'Bhagwat Gita' & know one self. It contains many paths of knowledge & philosophies. In this blog we shall try to go through those philosophies by understanding the different verses in different chapters of 'Bhagwat Gita', which describe in detail about all such philosophies. It shall be an interesting journey to go through it & how it shall relate to our day to day life.

Here below is a Video describing, What 'Bhagwat Gita' is all about?
