For many thousands of centuries people have wondered what the soul is and what the essence of the human soul is. Also for many millennia there were those who answered this question. There is a lot of literature written on this topic. I want to single out only one of them, the most special and the most valuable.
Most fully about the essence of the human soul is written in the ancient treatise in Sanskrit, in that very living book – the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most mysterious works of this world. The same mysterious as the soul itself. The second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita is the most important. This chapter is devoted to the soul of man. The most important idea of the second chapter of this treatise is the idea of the difference between a person’s soul and his body. In the text 20, the following is written: “The soul is not born and does not die, it never arises, does not arise and does not arise.” She is unborn, eternal,
always existing and primordial. She does not perish when the body dies. ” In the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita it is written that the soul embodied in the body gradually changes the body of the child to the body of the young man. Then on the old man’s body. And in the same way after death, it passes into another body. A person should not be surprised, a person should know this and take it as it is. The material body is perishable, it is doomed to die and sooner or later it will happen. We can not change this. And only the eternal soul is unchanging. The soul is immortal. She does not die when the body dies. She is like a man who takes off old clothes to put on new ones. It passes into a new material body, while leaving the former.
The same chapter describes the properties of the soul. The soul can not be dismembered by any weapon, burned with fire, watered or dried by the wind. Individual soul can not be broken into pieces or dissolved. Unchanging and eternal it always retains its properties. At the same time, the soul is invisible and incomprehensible.
In the same chapter in the text
29 it is written: “Some look at the soul as a miracle, others speak of it as a miracle, others hear that it is like a miracle, and there are others who, even hearing about the soul, can not comprehend it “. This means that not everyone can understand it. You can read as much as you like about the soul and its properties, you can say as many words about it as you like, but if you do not reach your level of understanding with your mind, your consciousness, it will not be enough. The soul is indeed a miracle. And any miracle is not easy to comprehend.
