Whole philosophy of Bhagwat Gita is about "Body & Soul" & what is the differentiation between the two. On the one hand Body is said to be perishable while the Soul is immortal which never dies. Lord Sri Krishna in Bhagwat Gita is only teaching that we should consider ourself as that immortal Soul & that we all are immortal if we do not think ourselves as this Body but Soul.
