True “Self”: Definition From Bhagavad Gita (IM 852)

According to Hindu religious book “Bhagavad Gita”, the nature of true self is that it has no nature as it does not exist and feels no pain, pleasure, heat or cold. Also, it is neither born, nor does it die and neither it can kill nor it can be killed. It is like an energy that just enters from one body to another.

The qualities of self are that it is indestructible, enduring, and immeasurable. Also, it is fixed, immovable and timeless. It cannot be cut by weapons, burn by fire or withered by wind.
