The Bhagavad Gita
Was in the park with nothing to read so I used the Bhagavad Gita app on my iPhone.
Found more passages regarding interplanetary warfare and the immortal soul.
"I am not prepared to fight with them even in exchange for the three worlds, let alone this earth." -- Arjuna, The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 1, Verse 32-35
"They lead not to higher planets but to infamy." -- Krishna, The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 2
"Those who are seers of the truth have concluded that of the nonexistent [the material body] there is no endurance and of the eternal [the soul] there is no change. This they have concluded by studying the nature of both." -- Krishna, The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 16
"O Partha, happy are the kshatriyas to whom such fighting opportunities come unsought, opening for them the doors of the heavenly planets." -- Krishna, The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 32
