Will The Dead Bodies Rise from their Graves?
Based on science, never. After a body is buried, it decomposes and turns to dust.
Based on Sanatan-Dharma, never. Once dead, the body, which is made of matter, decomposes and turns to dust. But this does not mean we are dead. The living entity is the soul and not the body. Death is for the body only, the soul is eternal. When the soul leaves the body, this is called death for the body. Death means transfer of the soul from one body to another, from one form to another. This is the fundamental law of energy. Energy cannot be destroyed but it changes forms. The living entity is the soul, the energy, and the form is the body.
Only the Bhagavad-Gita gives very clear and detailed information on the soul.
“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. The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by ﬁre, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind. 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. ” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.22-24)
At death of the body, the soul transmigrates to another body, exactly based on it’s desires and deserves (deeds – good and bad actions).
Other religions teach that the living entity is the body, thus we are the body. At death, the body is buried and on some day of judgement, the same body will rise again. This is completely unscientific logic.
They also teach that there is no distinction between the soul and body, both are one, and we never existed before this life, thus we are not eternal.
