Tarangini – A Flowing River or Stream – River Ganga or Ganges emerging from the Shivalik Hills, Rishikesh. She symbolizes an immortal stream of thoughts, ideas, and mental conceptions that drenched the soils of the Land of Bharat and the minds of its inhabitants.
HOW CAN A MAN SURVIVE AFTER HIS DEATH ?
This is not a discussion about “Afterlife“, or “Hereafter”. This is not a discussion about death, resurrection and then “Everlasting Life“. This is not a discussion about man’s historical legacy, his enduring fame after death, or about his perpetual existence in a Heavenly Mansion after his physical death. This is also not a discussion about transmigration or reincarnation of the human soul. The concept of immortality describes deathlessness or the idea of “Lasting forever”. In the material realm, everything that is born must die. The fleeting experience of human existence is often compared to the existence of an air bubble on the surface of a Lotus leaf. The material body cannot enter the immaterial realm. Only a “Tarang” or a ‘Wave’ that is not attached to any physical or material entity, a Wave that is set free and remains in motion, could make the transition and journey into the immortal realm. Does Individuality survive the physical death of the Individual?
