As such it is called a sarIram; srIyatE iti sarIram.
For an ordinary person the sUkshma sarIra remains to
take another body. But, for a jIvanmukta, even the
sUkshma sarIra will get dissolved.
As such a jIvanmukta has realised that he is not
sarIram. So, why would such One need a sarIram, to
bless his devotees. That One is ever existing as
Existance, Consciousness, Bliss.
Om Namo Narayanaya !!
