Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 25

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 25

तस्मादेवं विदित्वैनं नानुशोचितुमर्हसि।।2.25।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

2.25. This is declared to be non-evident, imponderable, and unchangeable. Therefore understanding This as such you should not lament.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

2.23-25 Nainam etc. upto arhasi. The weapons etc., that cause destruction, haldly do anything to This. For, being, by nature, exclusively pure Consciousness, remaining without support, having no component parts and being independent, this cannot be destroyed through the process of either assumption of an altogether different nature, or the destruction of the support, or the mutual separation of the component parts, or the rise of an opponent, and so on. Nor the act to going to another body is a new thing for This. For, even when This is [apparently] with a single body, This travels always to different body; for the body does not remain the same even for a moment. By understanding this Self to be as such, you should not lament This.
