You shall not die!

न जायते म्रियते वा कदाचित्

नायम् भूत्वा भविता वा न भूयः
अजः नित्यः शाश्वतो’यं पुराणो
न हन्यते हन्यमाने शरीरे

२.२०

na jāyate mriyate vā kadāchin
nāyaṁ bhūtvā bhavitā vā na bhūyaḥ
ajo nityaḥ śhāśhvato ’yaṁ purāṇo
na hanyate hanyamāne śharīre

 

The Atman is eternal. It is neither born, nor does it ever die.

Or, having once existed, it never ceases to be. The Atman is without birth, eternal, immortal, and ageless. It is not destroyed when the body is destroyed.

 

This is a meditation. We have been told always that we are mortals, we are born to die, we are helpless etc.

The body is impermanent, but it is only a cover. We are eternal.
