अथ चैनं नित्यजातं नित्यं वा मन्यसे मृतम्।
तथापि त्वं महाबाहो नैवं शोचितुमर्हसि।।2.26।।
।।2.26।। और यदि तुम आत्मा को नित्य जन्मने और नित्य मरने वाला मानो तो भी? हे महाबाहो इस प्रकार शोक करना तुम्हारे लिए उचित नहीं है।।
Even though the immortal soul is eternal, because of its constant connection and disconnection with the physical body from time immemorial it believes it is experiencing birth and death. Now begins the summation. Thus exists this expansive samsara known as the endless cycle of birth and death in the material existence. Until and unless the living entity has attained liberation from the material existence, one is subject to the stringent laws of endless births and deaths in different physical bodies as ordained by the material nature and so are following natural order. Therefore by possessing even this small amount of knowledge there is no need to worry. In the Shabda Nirnaya it is stated: Eternal and permanent the immortal soul is known to be and also the immortal soul is eternally in accordance with the cosmic order. Understanding in the knowledge that there is a cosmic order to existence one should not grieve.
