" It is never born, nor does it die: after coming to be, it does not cease to be; it is without birth, eternal, imperishable and timeless; it is not destroyed with the destruction of the body."
- Lord Krishna from the Bhagavad Gita.
"The universe is the outpouring of the majesty of God, the auspicious one, radiant love. Every face you see belongs to Him. He is present in everyone without exception." - Yajur Veda.
"He is the One, the One alone. In Him all deities become one."
- declares the Artha Veda.
"Whenever there is decline of righteousness and predominance of unrighteousness, I embody Myself. For the protection of the good and for the destruction of evil-doers and for the re-establishment of dharma (righteousness) I am born from age to age."
- Lord Krishna from the Bhagvad-Gita.
Dharma - How to treat others:
Do not to others what ye do not wish
Done to yourself; and wish for others too
What ye desire and long for, for yourself — This is the whole of dharma — heed —it well.
- Veda Vyasa, in The Mahabharata.
O Lord, liberate our souls
From the shadows of birth and death,
Not from our aspirations
of existence i.e. immortality.
— Yajurveda, 3.60
