Bhagavad Gita – You are not your Body and not your Mind – Part 1

I recently had an opportunity to experience  ‘Death Meditation’ guided by a wonderful master from India. Death Meditation is a simple, but very powerful meditation technique to introduce ourselves to our own death through vivid imagination. The idea is to experience how fragile the physical body is and that the only thing remain intact and untouched after our death is our soul, the ātman. As I visualized my body being cremated during this meditation, I realized that everything I considered…
