Life on earth is a halting place on the way to the achievement of the goal of life, God realization. Death is not the end of life but is a process of changing the instrument of experience. Birth is inevitably followed by death and death by rebirth. Life is a long chain, of which, recurring births, planery lives and deaths are the links.
