Hinduism,  guides man  to gain real life by experiencing himself as a spirit atman who came from an eternal origin Atman. The Gita teaches that he can realize spiritual growth through spiritual knowledge which can be achieved when he purifies himself  from the limitations of the senses. As such, man is guided to respond to a higher spiritual origin and become one with it. He  will then acquire a quality of  life which has no beginning, and no end.

He is never born, nor does he die at any time, nor having (once) come to be will again cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, permanent, and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain. (Gita: 2: 20)

There was never a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor any of these kings. Nor is there any future in which we shall cease to be.
As the soul passes in this body through childhood, youth and age, so is its taking on of another kind of body. The sage is not perplexed by this. (Gita: 2: 12, 13)

The Gita teaches that when man achieves purification, he grows spiritually as "his intelligence is firmly set" (Gita 2: 61). Man, hence, can handle everything in life from the perspective of real life rather than from the perspective of "illusions" resulting from "wishes" and "hates". Purification is a continuous process even if the soul has attained its highest goal; God's consciousness within and around in all directions.Purification continues as far as man allows  the divine part within to guide him and enlighten his heart.

I am the self-seated in the hearts of all creatures (Gita: 10: 20)
