That pure consciousness
Which is the all-knowing, indwelling Self
Is neither born nor does it die.
It did not originate from anything,
Nor has it ever become anything.
Unborn, undying, constant -
It lives when the body dies.
Those who think it can be deastroyed
Or that it destroys -
Neither of them knows.
For the Self does not destroy
Nor can it e destroyed...
~From the Katha Upanishad
