The Brahman

“When a person is about to die, he can no longer see and the god of sight deserts the body. The dying person ceases to see, inhale, talk, hear, think, touch or know. The outlet from the heart lights up and the minute being ascends upwards in a blaze of light. When the Brahman leaves the body, the life force also leaves. And subsequently, the atman enters a new body, depending on the action that was performed in the earlier life. A leech uses a blade of grass to move to another blade of grass. Like that, the atman uses one physical body to move to another physical body. A jeweler uses a little bit of gold to fashion out better and better ornaments. Like that, the atman uses this physical body to attain better and better worlds and better and better lives.”
