— M.N.Raju
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
— Buddha

The cell is the soul, the life, the spiritual part of a living being and it is considered as God, living in every living being. The cell is not only a tiny part of your body, but it is much beyond your body. It is tiny and yet it is mighty, it is mightier and it is the mightest in your body. It makes all the difference. You are different from other human beings. You are different from other living things. You are different from the entire universe and in many more ways you are alone. You are unique, in this creation – this is all because of your cell. No other person, no other animal, no other living entity has a cell similar to your cell. It is only one of its kind in this huge universe. Therefore the cell is all that magic, that is being played around all of us and in every one of us. The universe, the planets, the stars, everything, every movement every small and big issue is out of this magic. When something is born, something is dead, something grows, something stops growing, some change that happens and many more that are taking place; all happen because of this cell.

The Indian Rishis could understand and studied about the cell some thousands of years ago. They have declared that the cell is God, which is immortal. Now the modern science has been trying to understand and to study the cell. The cell is ‘Life’ and if the cell is absent it is ‘Death’.


The West didn’t believe that there is ‘Incarnation’ or ‘Re-birth’. But Indians believed in Incarnation since the very beginning and the Rishis declared that God incarnates himself when there is need. They also said that the ‘soul’ has no death and it is born again and again, that means the ‘cell’ has no death. Recently many western philosophers and spiritual saints are of the opinion that there is no death for the soul.

Goethe said:-
The soul of man is like water
From Heaven it cometh
To Heaven it riseth
And then returneth to earth
Forever alternating.

Albert Schweitzer said:-
So the idea of reincarnation contains a most comforting explanation of reality by means of which difficulties baffle the thinkers of Europe.

William wordsworth said:-
Our birth is but a steep and forgetting;
The soul that rises with us, our life’s star
Hath had elsewhere its setting
And cometh from afar,

Nietzsche said:-
Live so that thou mayest desire to live again – that is the duty – for in any care thou wilt again.

Walt Whitman said:-
I know I am deathless. No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before. I laugh at what you call dissolution and I know the amplitude of time.

Emerson said
It is the secret of the world – no one dies but only retires a little time and afterwards returns again. Nothing is dead. Men feign themselves dead, mock funerals and mournful obituaries follow.

What the Vedas said and what our Rishis said long long ago is proved to be the truth throughout the world and the west is accepting the rebirth theory. They started believing that when a person dies, his soul returns again to earth, arrayed in some new flush and in disguise of a new shape, new colour etc. Another mother gives him birth with sturdier limbs and brighter brain. The old soul takes the road again in its new body.

In such new body what you will have to do, what you will have to learn for your future, one more new life you will get
Learn the spirit of life.
Learn the meaning of life
Learn the grace of life
Learn the love of life
Learn the journey of life
Learn the purpose of life
Learn the life of life
Learn the law of life
Learn the joy of life
Learn the divinity of life
