Varanasi, also called Benares, Banaras, or Kashi, city, southeastern Uttar Pradesh state, northern India. The official name of Varanasi is not a modern name. It is possibly based on the fact that it lies between where the Varuna River , to the north, and the river Assi , to the south, flow into the river Ganga . The name Varanasi was spelt Baranasi in Pali, which ultimately gave birth to the name Banaras.

Legend has it that the first Siva Jyotirlinga emanated from the earth in this city and flared straight into the sky. This is why Varanasi is also known as Kashi or “the City of Light”.

जातस्य हि ध्रुवो मृत्युर्ध्रुवं जन्म मृतस्य च।
तस्मादपरिहार्येऽर्थे न त्वं शोचितुमर्हसि।।2.27।।

Jaatasya hi dhruvo mrityur dhruvam janma mritasya cha; Tasmaad aparihaarye’rthe na twam shochitum arhasi.

The sentence simply means, ‘Death is certain for the born’. Anything born will die; anything composed will decompose; anything formed will be deformed or unformed; an effec will last only as long as the force of the cause lasts, and so on. Is there anything that we know of that cannot possibly come to termination?

For certain is death fo the born, and certain is birth for the dead; therefore what is inevitable ought not to be a cause of thy sorrow.
