“In the modern world, Absolute Truth is kind of swept under the rug probably because it’s something, which you can’t know by experimentation very easily; primarily because it is not accessible by normal empiric investigation.
But in the Indian tradition, the Vedic tradition, the great seers, the great Yogis would research Absolute Truth through various forms of Yoga. Yoga means to link. So someone uses the mystic yoga process whereby through breathing exercises, through meditation, through introspection, they would be able to come in touch with the original source of all energy. They can realize their own spiritual, dynamic force.
The Bhagavad Gita clearly explains that the body dies and the body goes through these changes. It’s like a little child is there, but in ten years from now it will become a young person. Then in 25 years, it will become an adult. So the body, from baby to child, then to youth, middle age and old age goes through so many changes, but the person remains the same.
Krishna (The Supreme Personality of Godhead) explained in the Bhagavad Gita that we go through many changes in the body, but the soul, the self is non-different. When the body perishes and becomes uninhabitable, the living force simply transfers to a new birth. At the time of conception it enters into the womb of the mother through the sperm of the male and then conception begins when the two eggs combine. Science has been able to observe this.”HH Jayapataka Swami From the book: Taking Shelter of Krishna
