I love the way Krishna describes ‘death’ in the Bhagvad Geeta. Krishna says: Just like man sheds off worn out garments, so does the soul cast out worn out bodies and enters into new ones.The following verse is a famous one, and you may have heard/read it many times specially during orbituaries.It is : Nainam chhindanti sastraani nainam dahati paavakahNa chainam kledayant yaapo na soshayati maarutahWhich means:Weapons cut it not, fire burns it not, water wets it not, wind dries it not.
