Sri Govinda Bhagavad Pada: What brings you here?

Sankara: I come to you seeking refuge, to resolve the enigma of existence.

Sri Govinda Bhagavad Pada: With this mortal body how can you cross the ocean of existence?

Sankara: 'Body' is subject to birth and death, not Atman. The unreal has no existence, the real never ceases to exist.

(From the movie Adi Sankaracharya by GV Iyer)
