The man who finally,
when he has perfect control over his mind
when even this mind is dissolved,
severs his relationship with the body
departs from it with remembrance of God,
surely achieves total oneness with HIM.
Death of the body is not the final end,
for the succession of bodies continues even after death.
It is only when the last crust of earned merits
demerits (sanskar) has disintegrated,
and so also the restrained mind along with it,
that the final end comes,
and after that the Soul does not have to assume a new body.
But this is a process of action
it cannot be rendered comprehensible by just words.
As long as the transfer from one body to another,
like a change of clothes, persists,
there is no real end of the physical person.
But even while the body is yet alive,
with control of the mind and dissolution
the restrained mind itself,
physical relationships are sundered.
The worshipper then dwells in God and HE in the worshipper.
There is then not even the least distance between them.
But this achievement is made during a physical life.
When the Soul does not have to assume a new body……
that is the real end of the physical body.
This is a portrayal of real death after which there is no rebirth.
At the other end there is physical death
which the world accepts as death,
but after which the Soul has to be born again.
