Bhagavad Gita - Practical implementation in Life

The simple unassuming character of mind has changed with the march of time and has assumed a colorful disposition, and begun to shed its effect on everything in us, both outer and inner. Whatever, therefore, we take into our thought or action exhibits colorfulness in all its phases. Our excessive attachment to the environment, and surroundings of a similar nature, create in us heaviness and grossness. Subtleness is lost and everything that comes to our view is interpreted in the same light. This not only veils our understanding, but the heart and brain also get affected by it.

Who will be happy during Death?

By this it is understood that death is not at all the end. It is just a fall of outermost sheath called Annamayakosa (the body), which is a solid one around the soul. This fall of outer sheath is only due to its wear and tear, or otherwise this can be understood as a pause for rest, brought by Nature. When we subject this body to overwork mentally or physically, we get sleep, which is nothing but a pause that is brought up automatically. Death can also be understood in the same line. After rest one has to wake up and continue the work left out, which is still at his disposal.
