Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2 - Verse - 28

Formless before and after
Avyaktadeeni Bhootani Vyakta Madhyani Bharata
Avyakta Nidhananyeva Tatraka Paridevana

All beings in existence are formless in their origin. In the middle they become quantifiable beings in three dimensional life. After death too, they become formless and unquantifiable. This is the truth of existence. So why do you grieve oh Arjuna?
Before a child is born where was he or she and in what form. The child lives to become a youth, attains old age and then dies. After the death, where does that person go? When this is the truth for all creatures, where is the need to grieve over death, Krishna asks Arjuna.

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 27

Birth follows death follows birth.....

Jaatasyahi Dhruvo Mrityuhu Dhruvam Janma Mritasya Cha
Tasmad Apariharyerthe Natwam Shochitum Arhasi
Translation: For the born, death is certain. For the dead, birth is certain. Therefore, you should not sorrow over the inevitable, Arjuna!
Birth happens in the heat of love, when cells fuse together to form a body. This is fed, clothed and educated with all the resources available in this world. The body and mind are by themselves composed of the five elements - the Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space and thoughts that belong to the world. Birth and life is a certain state where a combination of these elements find themselves together, stay for a particular period of time...several decades in the case of humans and dissolve and part ways at the time of death.
Birth and death follow each other says Krishna to Arjuna. This is an inevitable truth and there is no point in worrying about something that cannot be changed. - Swahilya Shambhavi (swahilya.soulmate@gmail.com)

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse - 26

Day in and day out
Atha chainam Nithya Jatam Nithyam va manyase mritam
Tathapi thwam maha baho nainam shochitumarhasi
Translation: Even if you think that the self is born everyday and dies every day too, oh mighty Armed one, even then it is not proper for you to mourn.
The one self or consciousness within all of us is immortal. On the contrary, even if you think that it is born everyday and dies everyday, it is not right for you to mourn, oh mighty armed Arjuna, says Sri Krishna. - Swahilya Shambhavi (swahilya.soulmate@gmail.com).
