SLOKA OF THE DAY:
Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 20
na jayate mriyate va kadacin
nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah
ajo nityah sasvato 'yam purano
na hanyate hanyamane sarire
na--never; jayate--takes birth; mriyate--dies; va--either; kadacit--at any time (past, presentor future); na--never; ayam--this; bhutva--having come into being; bhavita--will come to be; va--or; na--not; bhuyah--or is again coming to be; ajah--unborn; nityah--eternal; sasvatah--permanent; ayam--this; puranah--the oldest; na--never; hanyate--is killed; hanyamane--being killed; sarire--the body.
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, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.
On the sidebar, under More Helpful Sites I have included a link to some Podcasts about the Mahabharata. They are 15 to 20 minutes long and give an abridged outline of the book along with much useful information. There are 100 podcasts in all.
