Sloka 30

DEHI NITYAM AVADHYOYAM DEHE SARVASYA BHARATA
TASMAT SARVANI BHUTANI NA TVAM SHOCHITUM ARHASI

This Self existing in the body of all beings is never killed. You should therefore not grieve for any creatures, O Bharata.

Dehi: this word refers to the “Atman” encased in all the physical bodies of various forms of life on this earth.

The Lord is reminding us again that “He”, as the “Atman” is inside all the living forms of life.

As has been reiterated several times, Krishna ascertains again that the “Atman” thus encased does not get killed at any time. Not just killed, but never gets killed, He stresses.

This verse is the summary of Krishna’s description about the immortality of the “Atman.”

Let us therefore remember to see “Sat, Chit, Ananda”, experience the bliss resulting thereof, and not get attached to “nama and roopa” which is the cause of anger, desire and grief.
