Destruction - an essential subject
This material world has been created, is being maintained and in due course of time, will be annihilated (full destruction). These 3 stages show the temporary nature of the world, and prove that everything has an expiry date here. However, although our bodies may be destructed at the time of death, we must realise that our original identities are that we are not this temporary body, but the soul within. This is confirmed by the Bhagavad-gītā which states 'the living entity is never born and he never dies. He is eternal and indestructible, and he continues to live after the destruction of his temporary material body.'
