According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, is indestructible and eternal (Chapter 2.18).

“antavanta ime deha
nityasyoktah saririnah
anasino ’prameyasya
tasmad yudhyasva bharata” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 18)

All these bodies pertaining to the indestructible, immeasurable and eternal living entity / soul are spoken of as perishable; therefore, fight, Arjuna.”
According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, neither slays not can it be slain (Chapter 2.19).

“ya enam vetti hantaram
yas chainam manyate hatam
ubhau tau na vijanito
nayam hanti na hanyate” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 19)

“Sri Krishna said: They are both ignorant, he who knows the soul to be capable of killing and he who takes it as killed; for verily the soul neither kills, nor is killed.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, is never born, never dies and after coming into existence never ceases to be. It is nitya (always), shasvatah (permanent) and purana (very ancient) (Chapter 2.20).

“na jayate mriyate va kadacin
nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah
ajo nityah sasvato ’yam purano
na hanyate hanyamane sarire” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 20)

“Sri Krishna said: The soul is never born nor dies at any time. Soul has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. Soul is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. Soul is not slain when the body is slain.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, does not suffer & cannot be tainted. At the time of death it does not die, but leaves the body and enters into a new one (Chapter 2.22).

“vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya
navani grhnati naro ’parani
tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany
anyani samyati navani dehi” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 22)

“Sri Krishna said: As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman has the properties that Weapons cannot pierce it, fire cannot burn it, water cannot moisten it and wind cannot dry it (Chapter 2.23).

“nainam chindanti shastrani
nainam dahati pavakah
na chainam kledayanty apo
na sosayati marutah” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 23)

“Sri Krishna said: The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, is impenetrable, incombustible, all pervading, stable and immobile (Chapter 2.24).

“acchedyo ’yam adahyo ’yam
akledyo ’sosya eva cha
nityah sarva-gatah sthanur
achalo ’yam sanatanah” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 24)

“Sri Krishna said: 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.”

According to Bhagwat Gita, the Soul, or Atman, is invisible, imperceptible and immutable (Chapter 2.25).

“avyakto ’yam acintyo ’yam
avikaryo ’yam ucyate
tasmad evam viditvainam
nanusocitum arhasi” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 25)

“Sri Krishna said: It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable and immutable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.”
Lord Krishna knew the limitations of human consciousness to gauge the true nature of the inner soul. So in the Bhagwat Gita it concurs that no one can exactly know what a soul is. Someone looks at It with great surprise, another speaks about It with great surprise, some another hears about It with incredulity and yet another after hearing about It knows it not (Chapter 2.29).
“ascharya-vat pasyati kascid enam
ascharya-vad vadati tathaiva chanyah
ascharya-vac chainam anyah srnoti
srutvapy enam veda na chaiva kascit” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 29)

“Sri Krishna said: 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.”

So in this way Soul is a Mysterious thing & can be understood if you have faith in God & in religious scriptures.

Jai Shri Krishna


There’s No Heaven & Hell After Death, Its just Nothingness !


We are Humans with bodies, that breathe to live and do all other life like activities that combine together to form and enrich our existence with experiences that are embellished with a variety of  emotions like joy,happiness, pain, sorrow, love, hate etc.

The emotions decorate our moments  namely into two distinct portions of Positive Or Negative experiences of which we largely hold onto remembering them or segregating them into much more variants of emotional experiences of our lives.

I believe to experience anything in life we need to be alive and  live in the moment, which means to Exist , to see it to believe it , for this we require our bodies,to experience,record and register those moments and then to re frame them and label them with emotions that we have during those moments .

Here it is very important to acknowledge the fact that in order to experience and feel certain emotions of some moments we require our bodies , if we have no body which is alive then how can we experience anything at all .

And with this belief i cannot believe in the Concept of Heaven and Hell after Death which many of religions tell us about, because to experience the angels and life of heaven we still require senses that are trapped only inside a living body, and even to experience the hot fire of hell we still  require to have a body which feels pain upon being pricked by the devils of hell.

So We require a body to experience Heaven and Hell after death !

Actually the whole concept is very confusing because when we live we have a body and so we experience everything but as soon as we die we lose this body thus losing our senses to experience anything which is around us.

Death is Emptiness , its complete Shunyata (zero) after life, there is nothing to experience nor to feel , forget Heaven or even hell , there is nothing to make us happy or sad, there isn’t a body to feel anything. What is gone is gone forever , its just the soul that circulates around like a dust particle only in search of a body to enter and get back to life again.

And it happens automatically not even the soul is in search it happens by itself , because there has been no longing or desire to relieve its just a process that has to be completed by its own.

As long as we live we are are full of experience , the day we die we are just nothingness.

We Cannot Please Everyone !

First Understand this :

” yeh duniya tumhare baap ki nahin hai aur naahi tum is duniya ke thekedaar ho ”

( this world is not owned by your dad nor you’re the master of this world)

then why worry so much…?

I have wasted almost 1/3rd of my life in pleasing other’s actually by doing what other’s perceive is acceptable and appreciable. And to this day even after realizing that i cannot make everyone happy and if others have to REMAIN unhappy i really cannot be their clown forever trying to make them smile, for am not even getting PAID for that. then why the hell should i even try.

One must know that you only got this life which is at your hand , yes this life the very moment now that you are ID-10020806breathing , this is your’s its you and everything around is about you

Jap Tap Vrat : Bhakti


तप में है बल                20120621_004

कुछ महीनो पूर्व मैं हरिद्वार गयी थी, जहाँ मुझे बहुत सुकून और राहत महसूस की, पवित्र गंगा जल में डूबकी लगाकर सूर्य देव को नमन कर मन में महसूस हुआ की शायद बरसो पुराने वक़्त के कर्मो की बुनी चादर जैसे बह गयी हो और उस जल धरा में  मेरे नए जीवन का संचार हुआ है ऐसा प्रतीत हुआ

 गंगा घाट पर बैठे दूर – दूर तक पानी ही पानी और इतना ठंडा जल शारीर के स्पर्श में आते ही सब गर्मी मानो चुरा ले गया हो और सब निराशा उड़ा ले रहा हो। सर से पैर तक तन में निर्मलता, स्वछता एवं शीतलता उत्पन्न हो गयी। 

गंगा जल का वेग बहुत ही तेज़ होता था मुझे लगा जैसे मेरे पैरो को घाट की सीडियों पर टिकाना बहुत मुश्किल होता जा रहा है ,पर मैंने तो निश्चय किया था की डुबकी लेनी है पैर से सर तक, पानी के भीतर होकर ही। और इसी दौरान शायद गंगा मैय्या को मेरी भक्ति इतनी पसंद आई की मेरे पाओ उठाकर वो चलने लगी, पर भला हो उन ज़ंजीरो का जिसकी वजह से आज मैं यहाँ बैठ कर लिख पा रही हूँ। 

 हरिद्वार में आरती देखने के  संग- संग भजन और जय कारे लगाने का अलग ही अनुभव होता है। शाम होते ही पानी में सब तरफ फूलो में सजे दीप बहुत सुन्दर लगते है , मैंने भी   दीप जलाये और हाथो से श्रद्धा के फूलो को उस पावन जल में प्रवाह किया। सच मे घाट पर बैठकर पैरो को पानी में डूबाये और उस शांत जल धारा के वेग को देखते रहना बहुत अच्छा लगता है।जगह जगह छोटी बड़ी पहाड़ियां और शिव भगवान की मूर्ति को देखते रहना और मनन करना अत्यनत सुखदाई अनुभव होता है। 

यह एहसास कुछ ही पलो का होता है, हालाँकि आपके और मेरे जीवन में ऐसे बहुत से सांसारिक एहसास होते होंगे या हो रहे होंगे, पर मैं जिस एहसास और अनुभव की बात कर  रही हूँ वो ज़िन्दगी में कुछ ही लोग पूर्ण कर पाते है। 

वो इसलिए की ज़रूरी नहीं की आप भगवन के दर्शन करना चाहेंगे तो कभी भी जा सकेंगे, क्यूंकि यह तभी मुमकिन है जब भगवन आपको दर्शन देने का बुलावा भेजे, नहीं तो इतने सालों से मेरी तीव्र इच्छा है की मैं माँ  वैष्णो देवी के दरबार जाऊं और माँ के दर्शन करू पर रूकावटे, अर्चने और कुछ निजी जीवन की समस्याए ऐसी है की मैं अब प्रतिज्ञा बद्ध हो गयीं हूँ हठ समझ लीजिये या जो कहिये, की जब मेरा विवाह संपन्न होगा मैं तभी दर्शन के लिए जाउंगी अपने जीवन साथी के साथ माँ के दरबार माँ के चरणों में। 

    यह सोचते -सोचते यह भी विचार आता है की “तप” की महिमा अंतहीन है,  क्यूंकि जिस गंग  के  जल में मुझे इतनी शान्ति और सुकून मिला, वो गंगा मैया के जल को धरती पर   लाने के लिए ऋषि  भागीरथ ने कितने वर्षो की तपस्या की जिसके पश्चात वह धरती पर आई और भगवन शिव ने उनके तेज़ वेग को सँभालने के लिए, उन्हें अपनी जटाओ में    धारण किया तब जाकर कहीं इस प्यासी धरती की प्यास भुजी, पापो का नाश हुआ और मृत जीवो और मनुष्यों को मुक्ति मिली। 

 सोचना सरल है पर निभाना बहुत कठिन, यह जप, तप एव भक्ति मामूली बातें नहीं, हर हफ्ते सोमवार, ब्रहस्पत्वार के व्रत हो या माता के नवरात्रे या एकादशी, शिवरात्रि या दुसरे विशेष व्रत, इनमे एक समय को तो ऐसा लगता है की पेट में लगी आग का क्या किया जाए, पर अन्दर से कुछ शक्ति मिलती रहती है जो व्रत को संपूर्ण करने में तन मन को नियंत्रित करती है जिससे मुझे तप की शक्ति पर विश्वास द्रढ़ हो जाता  है और यह समझने लगी हूँ की इस माया रुपी संसार में ऐसा कुछ भी नहीं जो हम तप से प्राप्त ना कर सके।
