Teachings of the Bhagavad Gita

A person should uplift himself with his own will,
He should understand the Atman with the help of his will. (Chapter VI, 5-6)
Bodies are said to die,
But, That which pervades all is Eternal
It is limitless and immutable.
It does not slay nor is it slain.
It is not born nor does it die.
It never ends and it never begins.
It is deathless, birthless, changeless, eternal. (Chapter II, 17-22)
