QUESTION: Dear Sir,


As you have "Moksha" which is called no death birth, But there is surety of death.
So how this body mind( jiva) remains in "being consciousness bliss".

vineet

Answer
Dear Vineet,

Thank you for your follow-up question.

The jīva does not remain in Moksha. Only Being-Consciousness-Bliss remains. However, sometimes, by the will of Bhagavan, a liberated jīva comes back to teach others.

Best wishes,

Brother William
