dehino 'smin yathā dehe kaumāram yauvanam jarā tathā dehāntara-prāptir dhīras tatra na muhyati Bhagvadgita (2.13) says that as the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change. In this verse, Lord Krishna explains the concept of the eternal soul (Atman) and its journey through different phases of life and death. This verse underscores the importance of spiritual wisdom and selfrealization in transcending the fear and confusion associated with the cycle of birth and death, ultimately leading to liberation (moksha) from the material world.
