Katha Upanishad – Essential Teachings

The soul is not liable to birth nor to death; neither does it take its origin from any other or from itself; hence it is unborn, eternal without reduction and unchangeable; therefore the soul is not injured by the hurt which the boy may receive.
If anyone ready to kill another imagines that he can destroy his soul, and the other thinks that his soul shall suffer destruction, they both know nothing, for neither does it ill  nor is it killed by another.
The soul is the smallest of the small, and greatest of the great. It resides in the heart of all living and nonliving. The soul, although without motion, seems to go to farthest space; and though it reside in the body at rest, yet it seems to move everywhere.
