Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 12

na tv evaham jatu nasam
na tvam neme janadhipah
na caiva na bhavisyamah
sarve vayam atah param

na--never; tu--but; eva--certainly; aham--I; jatu--at any time; na--did not; asam--exist; na--not; tvam--you; na--not; ime--all these; jana-adhipah--kings; na--never; ca--also; eva--certainly; na--not; bhavisyamah--shall exist; sarvevayam--all of us; atah param--hereafter.


Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.


Srila Prabhupada states in his purport: The Mayavadi theory that after liberation the individual soul, separated by the covering of maya, or illusion, will merge into the impersonal Brahman and lose its individual existence is not supported herein by Lord Krsna, the supreme authority. Nor is the theory that we only think of individuality in the conditioned state supported herein. Krsna clearly says herein that in the future also the individuality of the Lord and others, as it is confirmed in the Upanisads, will continue eternally.
