Hinduism Reincarnation


Reincarnation... 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?

Something that 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!

For understanding 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! How?

Answers dot 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! Why?


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 immortal!

Believing in 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!

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 cycle!

If reincarnation 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 in periphery!

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!

Reincarnation 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 cosmic system!


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 karma performed!

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!

The concept 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 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 life!

The precept 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 of Hinduism!

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!

Dictated by 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!
