So in Hinduism there is no death , maybe
The soul exists and will continue to dream the existence of a body. Once the body is no longer suitable it leaves it and dreams up a heaven or hell and then another body
This is perpetual and the conditions of the body can change. For example if the world becomes too hot , then the structure of body can change and the soul adapts to it
If there is a God or life after “death” surely it won’t be with a decayed body. The thing that survives, the soul will come up with an alternative. This alternative body – is not part of this dimension – hence it cannot be seen or known by the physical body
Well, with these basics we try to remain reassured. Those who have a firm conviction find their last minutes peaceful. Those who doubt panic. Either case the parting of the body is certain.
If this is the thinking of Hinduism, then why do the Hindus have Mahamrutyunjai mantra ?
Om Tryambakam Yajamahe
Mrityor Mukshiya Maamritat
We Meditate on the Three-eyed reality
Which permeates and nourishes all like a fragrance.
May we be liberated from death for the sake of immortality,
Even as the cucumber is severed from bondage to the creeper.
Why use the word cucumber ? Why not tomato? Why use the word tryambakam?
You may somewhat understand it but until shiv is reality – the true significance is not known. In the haste and ego of “I know” almost everyone will lose their life by a slight understanding devoid of experience
