| "This child who is playing, he is now, he has got a small body. Similarly, when he will get a body like his father, he has to change so many bodies. So many bodies. So the bodies will change but he, the soul, will remain the same. And now, at this childhood, or in the womb of his mother, or when the body is just like his father, or when the body is just like his grandfather—the same, same soul will continue. So therefore soul is permanent and the body is changing. This is explained in the Bhagavad-gītā: antavanta ime dehā nityasyoktāḥ śarīriṇaḥ (BG 2.18). This body is temporary. Temporary. Either this childhood body or boyhood body or youthhood body or mature body or old body, they are all temporary. Every moment, every second, we are changing. But the soul within the body, that is permanent."
