      Death and birth are two strong habits of the
      body; they have nothing to do with annihilation.
      Death does not annihilate the essential; it
      merely brings about a change of the coverings
      around it. Assuming a new covering is called
      birth, and casting off the old is called death.
      There is no death for the Atman (the Self)
      because: 1) Atman is eternal; it is never born
      and never dies; it is a perennial source of
      knowledge; 2) Atman is self-existent and
      does not need the support of anything else,
      for Atman alone exists everywhere; and
      3) Atman is formless; although it assumes
      and casts off forms, it remains unaffected.
