    Dear Bhargavi,
    I am glad, you are enjoying these Gita topics & are able to accept them.
    Let us not bother about "which janma" It may run to a very big number ! Then why think about it hypothetically?
    Thankyou, B.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Madam,

    The topic is really attractive. So when we realize atma there is no room for grief which is eternal. For the first time I am hearing about "Anatma". So we all are after this Anatma and that's why we are born again and again.

    Though it seems to be a one line philosophy, we need to undergo a lot of changes in self to attain this. But I am happy that the Lord has given us the ability to at least understand this concept.

    The "Space" example was too good.

    Dear VS,
    Thanks.
    Anatma is a term used only in vedantic parlance & denotes body-mind complex.
    Yes, this one line philossophy needs a lot of introspection.
    Of all panchabhutas, sky being vast & withour boundary, comes nearest to atma !
    Love,
    Chithra.
