the most grossly misunderstood concept of Hinduism, Buddhism and
Christianity is best explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
The definition of reincarnation simply means... our soul atman,
the spirit within manifesting another body after death of present
body! Reincarnation... rebirth of the soul in another body as understood
by most is an absolute misnomer! Why?
can never die... how could it rebirth... reincarnate! The concept
of Hinduism reincarnation as detailed in Bhagavad Gita can only
be understood if we truly follow definition of God Almighty... definition
of souls' atmans as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
Until concept of human evolution became clear... concept of reincarnation
can never be understood in entirety!
precepts of Hindu reincarnation... we have to understand that our
soul atman... the spirit within is the absolute master and controller
of human body and not vice versa! It is not within the capability
of human body to manifest a soul atman! Every soul atman manifests
a human body to work out its karma... remove dross impurities within!
Ever since every
soul atman started its cosmic journey... cleansing self of dross
impurities within is the ultimate goal of life in the cosmic system!
As a human being... as the manifest form we are supposed to assist
our soul atman in completing its cosmic journey at the earliest.
When human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
salvation (moksha)... it announces end of cosmic journey for soul
atman... the spirit within!
At no stage
of life form of human beings is governing! Life as a human being
is just a temporary sojourn in entire lifespan of 8.4 million manifestations
in life of a soul atman! No doubt human form is highest manifest
stage in cosmic life cycle yet, significance of human form is traveling
spiritual path with due diligence and sincerity... which most people
on mother earth never do!
Until human beings traveled spiritual path... path of unknown...
one never reaches stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of absolute
nothingness when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha)! The doctrine of reincarnation clearly
explains it all. The entire cycle of 8.4 million manifestations
in life of a soul atman is one single lifespan... unbroken... unhindered!
Many human beings
world over considered Hindu reincarnation as something connected
to past life! True... reincarnation as explained in Bhagavad Gita
is connected to past life but workings of reincarnation... Hindu
beliefs of reincarnation are understood by most in a distorted form!
com terms reincarnation as rebirth of soul in another body! Britannica
encyclopedia considered doctrine of reincarnation as... doctrine
of rebirth of soul in one or more existences! Oxford University
press explains it as existence of a soul that periodically reincarnates
in a body! All these explanations are flawed as explained above!
It is beyond capacity of most human beings to summarize the essence
we know as our soul atman! We failed to realize that our soul atman
being absolute master and controller of human body... the journey
of life also belonged to our soul atman... never the human form!
Mounted with a bloated ego most human beings considered themselves
a wrong notion does not mean we can belie the abstract truths of
life! No human being on mother earth who does not travel path of
spirituality can ever understand the intricate doctrine of reincarnation!
As per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... human beings truly are
manifest forms doing bidding of soul atman... the spirit within!
No matter how
many reincarnation stories we come across in daily life... no wonder
what evidence of reincarnation is presented by theologists... Religionists...
for understanding what is reincarnation all about... one needs assimilating
pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! One sacred
scripture... Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism contains it all!
The philosophy of reincarnation... doctrine of reincarnation is
never found wanting on scales of spirituality but searching for
scientific proof of reincarnation is meaningless... out of context!
Reincarnation is beyond purview of religionists... followers of
rituals! Only those who traveled uncharted path of spirituality
finally unveiled hidden cosmic theory of reincarnation!
Hinduism is the most brilliant concept of all... something that
makes absolutely clear the relationship between God Almighty...
souls' atmans and manifest human form! It is only through process
of evolution human beings finally evolved in cosmic system! It is
through process of reincarnation life moved ahead in cosmic life
did not exist ... there would at all be no life in cosmic system!
It is only through process of reincarnation... every soul atman
manifested life after another! After death of human body... every
soul atman manifested a new form based on residual balance of karma
of that moment.
For any reason if matching parents were not available on mother
earth... the released soul atman hibernated either in heaven or
hell (termed swarga and naraka in Hinduism)... in heaven if the
residual balance of karma is positive and hell if negative! Both
heaven and hell existed in sun... heaven in centre of sun and hell
Every soul atman
feels comfortable in millions of degrees centigrade temperatures
that exist inside core of sun! In the periphery where temperatures
are considerably less... a soul atman suffers for eternity! Existence
of heaven and hell is directly related to doctrine of reincarnation!
Changing life forms in cosmic system is as simple as changing of
guards at Buckingham Palace!
in Hinduism is the most beautiful principle of life! After death
of body... our soul atman manifesting a new form is just brilliant!
As our karma... accordingly the manifestation by our soul atman!
At the time of death of human body if residual balance of karma
demanded soul atman manifesting form of a laborer in next manifestation...
one could not don form of a Prince! This is just not permitted in
God never plays dice as stipulated by famous physicist Stephen Hawking
in his book, "a brief history of time". The ignorant scientist
failed to understand that spirituality is beyond purview of science!
Spirituality starts from the point where science ends! In the domain
of God there never are free lunches... everything results from our
We do not need
proof of reincarnation theory! The concept of reincarnation is well
explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the foremost of
all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth! Those who demanded
reincarnation proof are ignorant in matters spiritual! The gist
of all sacred scriptures can never be understood literally... it
needs reading in between the lines!
of past life regression, process of evolution, presence of a soul
atman within us and concept of heaven and hell are ample proof of
reincarnation theory being an integral part of cosmic life! The
law of karma directly proves existence of theory of reincarnation!
In absence of reincarnation... the law of karma would not be necessitated!
As per Bhagavad Gita... life starts in cosmic life cycle as an amoeba
(single cell formation)... the first manifestation by our soul atman
within! Subsequently it evolves into multi-cell formation... then
insect life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of human
beings! In absence of doctrine of reincarnation... evolution of
life in cosmic system carried no meaning!
The moment we
understood law of karma in entirety... reincarnation story became
clear by itself! No sooner life supporting planets like mother earth
evolved in cosmic system... doctrine of reincarnation... law of
karma took over! our soul atman the spirit within belief in reincarnation only expedites our
cosmic journey of life. Traveling spiritual path is a necessity
of cosmic system... something we cannot do without! Only by traveling
spiritual path human beings finally unveiled all cosmic truths of
of reincarnation as understood in Buddhism and Christianity is half
baked theory! Until we believed in big bang theory as detailed in
sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... understanding reincarnation
remained a distant dream! Summarizing it all... Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism explains A-Z of cosmic system!
Knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes knower of all... gains omniscience
for all practical purposes! If we truly seek proof of reincarnation...
we must try and understand teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita
It is through
path of reincarnation one finally understood the complex principle
of life after death in cosmic system! The existence of afterlife...
proof of life after death is all explained in irrefutable doctrine
of reincarnation! Only after death of mortal body... a new life
germinates in cosmic system! On the earthly plane after death of
human body... family weeps bereaved!
On the cosmic
plane nothing much has happened! After casting aside of earlier
form... our soul atman simply manifests a new body based on residual
balance of karma. Following Bhagavad Gita... reading everything
related to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana I finally
realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age.
Understanding crux of reincarnation beliefs of Hinduism finally
became a reality! Having reached cosmic end of life... Bhagavad
Gita has become like ABCD to me. It is as if I had dictated the
contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous manifestations!
I was born in
a Jain family yet, I believed more in fundamentals of Bhagavad Gita!
Ever since six years of age I was always after absolute truth! Nothing
in life mattered to me if it was not related to absolute truth!
I have walked the path of absolute truth every second of life! Only
then I could hear the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman
that seemed to come from within my heart!
voice of my soul atman... I finally reached portals of God Almighty!
This is my last manifestation! Nowhere to go further... I shall
but attain salvation (moksha) the moment I leave my mortal frame!
Those in doubt... read Bhagavad Gita! Try learning essence of Bhagavad
Gita. The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is a sure shot method
of reaching God in present life time!
