Why is it that every incarnation, be it Rama or Krishna, none of their stories tell us how they went back to heaven, or what happened to their bodies? What actually happened to them and when did it happen?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Well, I have no idea!
I tell you, they have left some beautiful knowledge. Take the knowledge and move on.
If you’re interested in doing some research, there are archeological departments.
Hema and D.K Hari are here. They are doing a lot of research. You can talk to them. They have also made a book called, ‘Historical Rama’, which is about how the Ram Setu was built and who the engineers were. He has done a lot of research. So you read and get to know.
Remember one thing, life is so beautiful! If you heart has opened up and inside if it is clear, there is purity in your heart, you’ll see life is beautiful.
If there is clarity in the mind, you will see that life has a lot of opportunity. If there is sincerity in action, you will see success is simply coming your way, even when unasked for. Sincerity in action brings such deep satisfaction.
So, purity in heart, clarity of mind, sincerity in action. That’s the formula.
