When I first came across this concept, in theBhagavad Gita, about 20 years ago, I was immediately fascinated by it. Not being subjected to birth, old age, disease and death got my attention. It’s safe to say that no one is looking forward to these aspects of life.
We do our very best to avoid old age, disease and death, but to no avail. We don’t want to look or get old and the proof of this is in the hundreds of billions of dollars that are spent by the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries in trying to preserve our youth and vigor. We’ll do just about anything to keep on looking young — stretch, pull, nip, tuck — whatever it takes. It’s an attempt to have eternal youth.
