There has never been a time when you and I have not existed – Bhagavad Gita

There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor there would be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.
Contacts of the senses with objects produce cold and heat, pleasure and pain. They come and go and are impermanent. Bear with them.
The person who these cannot afflict, chief among men, who is the same in pleasure and pain, wise, he is fit for immortality.
That which really is cannot go out of existence, just as that which is non-existent cannot come into being. The end of this opposition of ‘is’ and ‘is not’ has been perceived by the seers of essential truths.

Know that by which all this is pervaded to be indestructible. No one can bring about the destruction of the imperishable.
(Gita Chapter 2 verse 12 to 17).
