Perishable body, Imperishable Spirit
Anthavantha Ime Deha Nithyasyokthah Shareerinaha
Anashinoprameyasya Tasmadyudhyaswa Bharatha
What you see before you are bodies that are perishable and that have an end. They however contain the eternal, indestructible, immeasurable spirit in them. So just you fight Arjuna, the light of the Bharata race, says, Sri Krishna.
These words have relevance in the context of war, where the duty of a warrior is to fight. In other contexts, these words have a different application where it means, our body and those of others are bound to disintegrate sometime. And the spirit which dwells in us all is indestructible and ever flowing.
As long as the body is alive, let the spirit flow and express itself just as the music flows through Sri Krishna's bamboo flute.
