"The spirit is eternal, Na hanyate hanyamāne śarīre: (BG 2.20) 'Even after the destruction of this body, the consciousness is not destroyed'. That continues. Rather, consciousness transferred to another type of body makes me again alive to the material conception of life. That is also described in the Bhagavad-gītā, Yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ tyajaty ante kalevaram (BG 8.6). At the time of death, if our consciousness is pure, then that next life is not material, next life's pure spiritual life. But if our consciousness is not pure at the point of the verge of death, just leaving this body, then we have to take again this material body. That is the process going on by nature's law."
"In the spiritual world there is no display of inferior energy; there is only that superior energy, cetana, cidya-vat(?). The spiritual world is therefore called living world. There is no manifestation of this acetana, or inanimate. There are also varieties, as we have got here. There is water, there are trees, there is land. Not nirviśeṣa, not impersonal—everything is there—but they are all made of the superior energy. It is described that Yamuna River is flowing with her waves, but when Kṛṣṇa comes on the bank of the Yamuna, the waves stop to hear Kṛṣṇa's flute."
