6. Overcoming the Fear of Death

DEATH IS A TOPIC THAT HAS BEEN HEAVILY MISUED AND ABUSED BY VARIOUS RELIGIONS

देहिनोऽस्मिन्यथा देहे कौमारं यौवनं जरा |
तथा देहान्तरप्राप्तिर्धीरस्तत्र न मुह्यति || २ १३ ||
dehino ‘smin-yathaa dehe
kaumaram yauvanam jaraa
tathaa dehantara-praaptir-
dhiiras-tatra na muhyati (SBG 2:13)
Just as the Atman or soul, which is in the body, passes childhood, youth and old age, it acquires another body after that body dies. Wise people are not baffled by this fact. (SBG 2:13)

5. Handling Temptation

TWO THINGS TO STAY AWAY FROM

इन्द्रियस्येन्द्रियस्यार्थे रागद्वेषौ व्यवस्थितौ |
तयोर्न वशमागच्छेत्तौ ह्यस्य परिपन्थिनौ || ३ ३४ ||

thau hyasya pari-panthi-nau (SBG 3:34)
Both, attachment and repulsion for sense objects rest in the senses. One should not come under their control because they are obstacles in one’s path towards Self-realisation. (SBG 3:34)
