His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
The Japanese edition of Beyond Birth & Death.
We tend to 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." In reality, life is an unending continuum, and what we call "birth and death" are only bodily changes. The beginning of spiritual knowledge is to understand the great difference between the self and the body.
This is also Krishna's first instruction in the Bhagavad-gita, the ultimate guide to spiritual consciousness; for the self there is neither birth nor death. We're all eternal spiritual beings, meant to live eternally in relationship with the Supreme Person. The joy we experience once we understand the difference between our self and our material covering cannot be overestimated.
Beyond Birth and Death was edited from lectures given in 1966 on the second and eighth chapters of the Bhagavad-gita. This is an excellent introduction for anyone interested in exploring the great spiritual treasures found in ancient India's Vedic wisdom.
