The below is a translation in English from the Vedic scripture called The Bhagavad-Gita (BG), which was written more than 5000 years ago. This is yet another of the millions of proofs that Lord Krishna is the Supreme person (God) and the Vedic knowledge comes from Him. The scientists still do not know the science of the soul.
This information is unique to the Vedic scriptures, because the Vedic was given by the origin of everything, Lord Krishna (God). The speaker of the Bhagavad-Gita and compiler of all the Vedic knowledge.
Bg. 2.10 – O descendant of Bharata, at that time Krsna, smiling, in the midst of both the armies, spoke the following words to the grief-stricken Arjuna.
Bg. 2.11 – The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: While speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead.
Bg. 2.12 – 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.
Bg. 2.13 – As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change.
Bg. 2.14 – O son of Kunte, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.
Bg. 2.15 – O best among men [Arjuna], the person who is not disturbed by happiness and distress and is steady in both is certainly eligible for liberation.
Bg. 2.16 – Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent [the material body] there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both.
Bg. 2.17 – That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul.
Bg. 2.20 – 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.
Bg. 2.21 – O Pärtha, how can a person who knows that the soul is indestructible, eternal, unborn and immutable kill anyone or cause anyone to kill?
Bg. 2.22 – As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.
Bg. 2.23 – The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.
Bg. 2.24 – This individual soul is unbreakable and insoluble, and can be neither burned nor dried. He is everlasting, present everywhere, unchangeable, immovable and eternally the same.
Bg. 2.25 – It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.
Bg. 2.26 – If, however, you think that the soul [or the symptoms of life] is always born and dies forever, you still have no reason to lament, O mighty-armed.
Bg. 2.27 – One who has taken his birth is sure to die, and after death one is sure to take birth again. Therefore, in the unavoidable discharge of your duty, you should not lament.
Bg. 2.28 – All created beings are unmanifest in their beginning, manifest in their interim state, and unmanifest again when annihilated. So what need is there for lamentation?
Bg. 2.29 – Some look on the soul as amazing, some describe him as amazing, and some hear of him as amazing, while others, even after hearing about him, cannot understand him at all.
Bg. 2.30 – O descendant of Bharata, he who dwells in the body can never be slain. Therefore you need not grieve for any living being.
