DEATH MYSTERY What dies when you die?
00:10
We have three bodies. The causal body, the subtle body and the gross body. The causal body, also known as ignorance is the cause of the other two bodies i.e. the subtle body and the gross body. Ignorance is the cause of a new birth. As long as we don't remove our ignorance we will be born again and again in different bodies, as different living beings like a plant, an animal or human being, to name a few.

The purpose of a human body is to remove ignorance, of our true nature. These three bodies are made up of inert matter in the form the five elements viz. space, air, fire, water and earth, either subtle or gross. If our ignorance is not removed and we die, then only the gross body dies and is disposed off by different methods. The subtle body continues its journey to find a new gross body. The ignorance is in the subtle body made up of thoughts and so the cycle of birth and death continues till the ignorance is not removed by knowledge.

If we remove the ignorance of our true nature by knowledge, then our ego dies and we become free then and there. Our wrong notion about ourself is cleared in the subtle body. Then the subtle and gross bodies continue to live till their expiry date, when they both disintegrate and merge in their respective elements from which they were made and since their cause i.e. ignorance has been removed there is no more birth. So that explains the death of the causal body, the subtle body and the gross body. You become Brahman which has neither any birth nor it dies. That is Self Realisation.
