Beyond Birth and Death
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
An inquisitive person naturally wonders about the meaning of life, and whether there is something beyond death. We often think of “life” as a relatively short span of time in between our birth and our death. We celebrate birth as “coming into life” and mourn for the “dead”, when in fact life is an unending continuum.
Beyond Birth and Death was prepared from transcripts of lectures that Srila Prabhupada gave in 1966 on the second and eighth chapters of the Bhagavad-Gita, which begins with this cornerstone teaching: For the self there is neither birth nor death. We’re all eternal spiritual beings, meant to live eternally. The joy we experience once we understand the difference between our self and our temporary material covering cannot be overestimated.
