Thanks a lot prabhu...Hare Krsna..
Hare Krsna Prabhuji,
When we read scriptures, we realise that we are not the body, we are soul. That the body perishes, the soul never perishes. So if we want to end the body by committing suicide, it is not going to solve our problem, because the soul never perishes. We will have to undergo same misery in next birth, in fact it can even be magnified because of the added karma of having committed suicide. So if committing suicide is not going to solve our problem, rather it will compound the probklem, then why commit suicide?
You could read, understand and meditate on Shloka 2.14 of Bhagavad Gita - matra sparsatu kaunteya...it talks about the impermanence of happiness and distress, how they keep coming like changing seasons and how one has to be steady in the face of both, happiness and distress. This shloka helps to form a balance and not be too disturbed by either happiness or by distress.

Thank u soo much..mathaji..Is commiting suicide a sin?
Yes prabhuji. Committing suicide is a sin - materially as well as spiritually.
You know you can be arrested for attempting suicide. Spiritually it is considered a sin because we get a life form due to our past karma and desire. We suffer or enjoy in any lie because of our karma. At the same time, the purpose of that life is for the soul to evolve (by experiencing various sufferings and happinesses). By ending the life ourselves, we are denying the soul the growth it is supposed to have while staying in this body. In fact, the soul doesnt even get a gross body for some time after committing suicide.
Suppose the intended lifetime in that body is 70 years, a person commits suicide at 30. Balance 40 years, it will not get another gross body. It will remain in ghost body. That is very painful experience for the soul. Every soul takes on a gross body to enjoy through the senses of that body. Thats why no gross body means no enjoyment.
On the other hand, if one takes a step back in times of extreme sorrow and thinks - this too shall pass - it is able to tolerate the pain and surely it passes. Then life goes on as usual - alternating between pain and pleasure.
Not at all a good idea to attempt suicide prabhuji.
THANKS a Lot MATHAJI..But at times I feel to do so nd cant control myself..
Hare Krishna , Always be in association of devotees , I always feel that people get lonely and start think on their own and way to over come their Grief or problems . share issues with senior devotees or whom u can confide too and always think that this world is Dukhalayam and all are suffering here in one way or the other .
Thanks prabhu..Hare Krsna..
