Insentient subtle body which consists of mind and ego goes through the three states and it is the one which undergoes transmigration cycle (birth-death-birth ….).
Subtle body consists of antahkarana – manas, buddhi, ahamkara, chitta, five pranas, five sense organs, five organs of action are indicated above in the form of mind and ego. Subtle body is also called linga sharira.
- SELF (atma) is never born, never dies.
- Subtle body is insentient but appears to be sentient due to presence of SELF.
- Individual jiva with subtle body does not die but transmigrates.
- Gross body is insentient. It keeps changing everyday. Once in about 7 years, totally new body will be there.
Hence there is no point in grieving about death
