The mother at Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry
Death is not inevitable.
Rip Van Winkle into a different world of, say 2070AD!
Saints, sages and scientists are unanimous that a man need never die at all. Death is not inevitable. One can live forever and forever like a planet spinning eternally on its axis if one knew all the laws of life and death promoting forces of life and retarding forces of diseases and death.
Scientists are working on this theory and evolving prescriptions for longevity, eternal youth, everlasting beauty, and complete immortality, so much so that one man dying of cancer in USA has his body embalmed and refrigerated so that he can be revived and resuscitated when a remedy is finally discovered for the disease which has laid him low. Then once again he can rise up like Rip Van Winkle into a different world of, say 2070AD!
Sri Raghavenda swamy Mantralaya Mutt
Mother at Pondicherry
The mother at Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry also believes that our death is the result of our imperfections and the universal misconception that man is mortal and every one of us must die sooner or later.
When we see people dying round us, we cannot fight off the hypnotic idea of universal death. This self-hypnotism finally harries us and hurries us to over graves and cremation grounds or just electric crematoria.
Indian saints and sages have always advocated the possibility of immortality through dedication and devotion to God and concentration on him. Repetitive force of `Om’ or `Wahey Guru’ can make it possible for a rishi to live forever. According to Indian tradition and popular belief deep in the caves high up on Himalayas there are still saints and sages who have lived for thousands of years and death is stranger and a phenomenon unknown to them.
There is only one God though He is worshipped in many forms. He is the supreme author of life and the master of all creatures.
Have trust in God and put in your best. Then success and happiness will be yours.
