      ON DEATH: "If the Atma is all-pervading there should
      be the Atma in a dead body also. Then why does a dead
      body not function?" Swami Shyamananda raised another

      "A dead body does not function because the individual
      soul, the mind and the Pranas have left it,"
      explained the Master.

      "In the case of a Self-realised sage there is no
      individual soul but only the Atma, so why should his

      much lesser than mastering one's mind and unfolding
      one's spiritual potentialities." - Swami Sivananda
