The Soul is Indestructible

Words from the Bhagavad Gita that have comforted me in times of loss and sadness:

For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.

The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.

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.

My heart is heavy following the events that took place in Seattle yesterday. I wish the families of all of the victims comfort and peace.
