What happens to the
Body after Death
(Death Reason)


What happens to the body after death... has intrigued mankind ever since wisdom (termed jnana in Hinduism) took a firm footing! What happens to the body after death is intriguing not only to the spiritual seekers... the accomplished sages and saints but what happens after death equally disturbs mankind in general... the masses... the commoners!

We all want to know... what happens after death? Where does our soul atman... the spirit within go after death of the body! Does the body incarnate into a new life form... a new human being in the next manifestation... if it does then in the interim period where does our soul atman... the spirit within remain?

Until the manifestation into a new body... a new journey of life... where does our soul atman disappear. What is the connecting link between two manifestations... two human lives? Is human being truly a spiritual being... or a form manifested by our soul atman to maintain continuity of life in the cosmic system!

What does it mean when people say after the death of the body... we again reincarnate into a new body... a new journey of life! Is it the present body that reincarnates or it is altogether a new form of life in the next manifestation! What is the true status of a human being in the journey of life of a soul atman... the spirit within!

The death of the body... is it a temporary phase in the journey of life... or a permanent end for the present body... the present human being! What is the relationship between human beings and their soul atman... the spirit within! Why human beings manifest a new life after death of the body? Where do heaven (swarga in Hinduism) and hell (naraka in Hinduism) come into play?

If we truly desire understanding, "what happens to the body after death"... we have to assimilate the teachings contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on Mother Earth. Gautama Buddha came 423 years earlier to Jesus Christ. Gautama Buddha was preceded by Mahavira who came 77 years earlier!


And Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) came about thousand years earlier to Mahavira... the man who gave Bhagavad Gita to community! The sermon of Bhagavad Gita was delivered to King Arjuna by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata... as Lord Krishna wanted upholding Dharma (righteousness) under all costs.

Bhagavad Gita is not all about a sermon... or philosophical teachings or spiritual messages! Bhagavad Gita is the beginning and the end of life. Right from the stage of big bang when God Almighty explodes self to form a Cosmos... until dissolution of the Cosmos (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)... all is given in explicit detail in the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.

The messages conveyed in Bhagavad Gita form the true essence of life! In absence of Bhagavad Gita mankind simply could not survive. Religions were never a path to reach God. People pray to God... to gain something out of God... we are demanding of God in our prayers! In worshipping God... we fear the hidden factors... the unknown domain that can surround us any moment!


Those who truly desire traveling the spiritual path... reaching God in their lifetime... understand the intricacies of life in the end! The moment one gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... the intrigue... what happens to the body after death becomes clear in entirety... as if it had been hiding behind the door all the time!

The crux of life can only be understood after reaching the stage of enlightenment... never before! For an enlightened one death carries no meaning! Having gained enlightenment... we cross over complexities of ephemeral life forever... becomes immortal forever from the physical manifestations point of view!

Immortality is not a chapter of physical manifest life. Immortality is meant for an enlightened one... one who has reached the end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! Reaching the end of cosmic life is not an ordinary mortals domain... it requires patience, persistence and perseverance of the highest order!

The moment an enlightened one realizes we are in fact an immortal soul atman on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... the form of human beings simply being a series of sojourns for the soul atman to cleanse self of the dross impurities within. It is by traveling the spiritual path... the ignorance within the soul atman reduces step-by-step!

The moment full awakening of the Kundalini occurs... one reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) forever. For an enlightened one death carries no meaning as the need for the soul atman to manifest a new body now ceases to exist! The purified soul atman finally enters abode of God... the kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism).

For an ignorant dominated by a bloated ego... wanton desires and greed for materialistic riches... the phrase... what happens to the body after death continues haunting for long! But to an enlightened one... one who has reached the end of cosmic life... death was but a temporal phase... as simple as changing of guards at Buckingham Palace!


After death of body the bereaved family weeps but on the spiritual front... in the domain of God Almighty... in the life of soul atman nothing much has happened. The freed soul atman (not liberated)... the moment matching parents become available on Mother Earth manifests another life form and starts a new journey of life!

Understanding intricacies of the spiritual world are not difficult to fathom yet, it is only by traveling the spiritual path one unveils the pearls of wisdom contained in spirituality step-by-step. As the ignorance within the human beings reduce... our soul atman steps higher on the spiritual plane. Removal of ignorance... taking control of five senses and mind in totality is the essence of life!

From limited power of five senses and mind... workings of spiritual path can never be visualized! Only when one transcends five senses and mind in totality... one enters the domain of spirituality... the world of our soul atman... the spirit within! Intermittent peeping into the domain of God is a daily affair for many but permanent communion with God is possible after gaining enlightenment!


If we truly desire understanding what lay beyond death... what happens after death... we need to travel the spiritual path now for we do not know what we shall be in the next manifestation! Only by understanding the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita can one unveil the truth behind... what happens to the body after death... never otherwise!

Karma is the connecting link between two manifest forms of life. Whatever is the residual balance of karma after death of body in present life... the same becomes the opening balance for the next manifestation... the new journey of life! The moment one gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... the karma negates forever... becomes nil in entirety!

After death of the body until the freed soul atman gets a new body... the soul atman remains either in heaven (swarga in Hinduism) or hell (Naraka in Hinduism). In swarga Heaven if the residual balance of karma is positive and hell if negative! Both heaven and hell exist in sun... Heaven in the center and hell in the periphery!


Still, can we say as preached by religious teachers that one shall get the seat of choice in heaven by doing pious deeds in present life... making charitable donations etc.! Heaven exists in center of sun where temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade... it is in such high temperatures our soul atman feels comfortable!

Hell exists in periphery of sun where temperatures are considerably less. It is in such low temperatures our soul atman suffers for eternity! Sooner matching parents become available on Mother Earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifests a new life form and starts a new journey of life on Mother Earth.
