Goodbye my lovely Nandita. On death Amma says: Death occurs not because of the absence of the Self (Atma) but because of the failure of the instrument (Upadhi) ie body. Death is the destruction of the Upadhi; it has nothing to do with any deficiency in the Self. Just as when the balloon breaks, the air doesn't cease to exist.
