Radhanath Swami on Cause for Lamentation

As the embodied soul passes in this body from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly accepts another body at the time of death. It is simply another change. There are so many changes in life, and death is one of the inevitable changes. The Vedic scriptures explain that death is not to be lamented because the soul never dies. It is the bodily conception of life that is the source of all misery and suffering. The problem is not birth, old age, disease or death. The problem is that we are identifying ourselves with the body that is going through these changes. We cannot avoid it. We can at the most postpone it for a few years. Therefore Vedic scriptures like Bhagavad Gita and the other great scriptures of the world teach us how to become free form the cycle of birth and death.

  2. This is a science. Thus those who possess the knowledge dont lament. They understand what's behind the scene.

    Radhanath Swami beautifully summarizes that the problem is not birth, old age, disease or death but rather that we are identifying ourselves with the body that is going through these changes.

  7. Wonderful solution for all our miseries. If we understand that all the suffering in our life is because of the body...we would be in much better position and happier as well. Main aim of our life is spiritual progress and that is possible if we understand this simple truth of our life

    Lamentation, at best, is the worst use for one' precious time. Radhanath Swami relies on the eternal wisdom of Gita to illustrate this.
