Never was there a time when i did not exist, or you, or these kings;
nor will there come a time when we cease to be.
Just as, in this body, the Self passes
through childhood, youth, and old age,
so after death it passes to another body.
Physical sensations - cold and heat, pleasure and pain - are transient:
they come and go; so bear them patiently, Arjuna.
Only the man who is unmoved by any sensations,
the wise man indifferent to pleasure, to pain, is fit for becoming deathless.
Nonbeing can never be; being can never not be.
Both these statements are obvious to those who have seen the truth.
