Question: How can man live forever?1

Sri Chinmoy: We have to know what we mean by man. If we mean the physical body, then it is impossible to live forever. The five elements that constitute the physical body cannot last. If an individual identifies himself only with the physical body, naturally there can never be immortality. But if he identifies himself with the soul, then he knows that he is immortal. The body will die but when it is a matter of consciousness — which every human being has and which every human being inwardly is — man is eternal and immortal.
