Is there Life after Death


Is there life after death is not a query you type on Google search engine or Yahoo Explorer and get myriads of queries and related answers! Life after death is an absolute fact of life... something that can never be disputed even by ignorant... the commoners! Proof of life after death is available all-around. Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism proves this fact of life in absolute terms!

The concept of life after death evolves from the fact that we human beings are not the absolute master and controllers of life... truthfully; in fact it is our soul atman that is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years! In this large span of life every soul atman finally reaches cosmic end of life when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... and finally salvation (moksha)!

On mother earth... human form is the highest manifest stage undertaken by our souls' atmans! Only in human form our souls' atmans get liberated from cycle of birth and death forever... never in other life form! Existence of life after death is proved from the fact that life evolves in cosmic system initially as an amoeba (single cell formation)... the first manifestation by our soul atman!

Subsequently it evolves into multi-cell formation, then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally the form of human beings! If life after death did not exist in cosmic system... the need for theory of evolution would never have existed! Life evolves in cosmic system step-by-step gradually! Every human being initially started as an amoeba and finally reached form of human beings!

We are primarily a spiritual consciousness on its cosmic journey! Every soul atman has the potential of triggering trillions and trillions of atomic bombs... for all practical purposes the power of a soul atman is unlimited! Dominated by a bloated ego we human beings think that the present life sojourn is the end of life! The truth is exactly opposite.


As per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... death of body is only temporary. To evolve further up... death was necessitated in cosmic system! In absence of death... there could never be evolution in cosmic system! Death does not announce end of life... salvation moksha does! Reaching stage of salvation moksha by human beings announced end of life for that particular soul atman... having gained absolute purity the liberated soul atman finally enters abode of God!

Step-by-step... gradually human beings are supposed to move up the ladder of evolution! But do we? Mounted with a bloated ego... mesmerized by material riches most human beings stuck in daily routines of life... always questioning existing true facts of life after death... to what avail! Only serious seekers of spirituality finally cut across the shackles of their ego!

The moment one overcame all the bindings of ego... reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) became a reality! The moment we realized that we are a cosmic being on its cosmic journey... we started traveling spiritual path that was necessitated for liberating self from cycle of birth and death forever!


To keep process of life after death continuing forever... the doctrine of karma was necessitated! It was only when karma negated to zero... human beings finally reached end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment and finally salvation!

Negation of karma forever announces our soul atman regaining its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form forever! This liberated soul atman finally entered kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)! Kingdom of God... Vaikuntha is a place of no return! Souls atmans that have become pure need not manifest a body again... the need for purified soul atman to manifest a new body now ceased to exist!

As long as impurities existed within a soul atman... it manifested life forms one after another! The moment a soul atman reached 8.4 millionth manifestation... all is over for the soul atman within! The crux of life after death finally coming to an end... the liberated soul atman remains in Vaikuntha (kingdom of God) forever!


If Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism says, presence of life after death is a reality... why must we believe in this fact of life? Is there life after death is not a mystery that can never be solved? The 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita can never be understood literally. If we truly need understanding mystery behind life after death... we needed reading in between the lines!

Only by traveling uncharted path of spirituality... the path of unknown human beings finally reached abstract truths of life that are contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! In other words, God Almighty can only be reached via path of spirituality... never religion... rituals! Reaching God Almighty announces a soul atman reaching salvation moksha forever!

Is there life after death is proved in myriads of ways! Existence of theory of evolution... existence of theory of karma... existence of God Almighty... existence of something fluttering in our heart (which is inevitably our soul atman that has manifested human form)... people reaching enlightenment (termed self realization in Hinduism) is ample proof of existence of life after death!


A child born with memories... people experiencing bad fate... someone winning lottery all of a sudden... all result from existence of life after death! If we believe in the existence of a soul atman... we have to believe in the theory of life after death! As the life cycle of a soul atman is one uninterrupted single journey of life consisting of 8.4 million manifestations... the intermittent death is but a temporary sojourn for the soul atman!

After the death of body based on residual balance of karma... a soul atman again manifests a new body! Existence of heaven and hell (termed Swarga and Naraka in Hinduism) is ample proof of life after death! Both heaven and hell are interim places for stay of souls' atmans when matching parents are not available on mother earth!

As per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism every soul atman hibernates either in heaven or hell if after death of body on mother earth matching parents are not available! A soul secures a seat in heaven if the residual balance of karma is positive... and hell if negative! No sooner matching parents becomes available on mother earth... the hibernating soul atman immediately manifests a new body and starts a new cycle of life!


For understanding the ultimate crux of life... for traveling spiritual path sincerely and diligently... assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita is an absolute necessity! In absence of Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... no human being on mother earth can reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)! Enlightenment can never be gained via path of Christianity or Islamic Dharma!

This is not a saying of a devout Hindu... this is an absolute fact of life supported by sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... prime reason why none other than Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed gained enlightenment in Christianity or Islamic Dharma! In Hinduism... if not thousands... hundreds gained enlightenment in the past!

As per Jainism scriptures... millions and millions of Jain munis (monks) gained enlightenment in the past! The claims of Hinduism and Jainism can never be disputed! Hinduism forms the core of life on mother earth. Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is a universal document that can be followed by anyone belonging to any religion, faith or belief!


For following precepts contained in Bhagavad Gita... one need not convert to Hinduism! Truly contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita have universal appeal! The sayings of Bhagavad Gita... the teachings of Bhagavad Gita were applicable about 3600 years before now when Bhagwan Krishna gave the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita to mankind and even now!

With passage of time... the teachings of Bhagavad Gita have not diluted like teachings of Jainism... Buddhism... Christianity and Islamic Dharma! No matter what the sayings of religious preachers of different religions... absolute truths contained in Bhagavad Gita can never be belied! In present times... following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita any human being on mother earth can gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally reach stage of salvation (moksha)!

The existence of God Almighty... existence of heaven and hell... doctrines of enlightenment, salvation, karma and dharma are ample proof of life after death! It is only by understanding definition of soul atman... spiritual seekers world over enhanced their spiritual journey! The concept of afterlife is not a precept... it is an absolute abstract truth of cosmic life!


Believing in concept... "Is there life after death" is believing in God Almighty! Until we believed in the fact that God Almighty (the cluster of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given point of time) is creator of all things cosmic including souls' atmans... we do not reach anywhere! Primarily... the journey of cosmic life belongs to our soul atman... never the human form!

Even though life seems broken after the death of human body... in the cosmic crux of life... the entire lifespan of 96.4 million earthly years in the life of a soul atman is one single span of life! At the time of death of human body... family weeps bereaved... in the cosmic system nothing much has happened! It is just like changing of guards at Buckingham Palace.

Based on doctrine of karma when death takes over... it is time for our soul atman to manifest a new body... start a new journey of life! Death never overtakes all of a sudden. All depends upon our karma! At no stage of life we can ever blame God Almighty! Every single action indulged by human beings is based on our karma of the past!


For our woes in life, God Almighty is never to blame! Human beings are the controllers of their destiny... no matter what! Only by traveling spiritual path we realize this cosmic truth of life! Most human beings on mother earth while indulging in material pursuits of life think that God Almighty is the cause of their sorrows... worries and woes!

As per doctrine of karma, God Almighty always acts as a Dhrishta (onlooker) never interfering with the creation of his! Why blame God Almighty for karma indulged by us? Who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the spiritual path now and unveil the hidden pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita!

There is no dearth of proofs of life after death but they can all be known by traveling spiritual path... never path of religion or rituals! Traveling spiritual path means cutting across shackles of karma forever! This becomes possible when we established absolute control over five senses and mind! In present Kali Yuga... establishing control over five senses and mind is really difficult!


People in present find it difficult to reach stage of Mahatma Gandhi or Swami Vivekananda... to reach stage of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharishi Ramana seemed totally impossible! In the last about 150 years amongst 7 billion people existing world over only Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana succeeded in gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)!

For a spiritual stalwart understanding precepts contained in Bhagavad Gita is not difficult! Traveling path of absolute truthfulness, practicing absolute celibacy for a period of 14 years in continuation I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age! Having reached cosmic end of life... this is my last manifestation! The moment I leave my mortal frame... I shall attain salvation (moksha)!

When I started in search of God 13 years of age... I was totally unaware of perils of spiritual path! As I progressed ahead in search of God... the hidden meanings of spiritual scriptures started becoming clearer! Remaining truthful all along... I finally unveiled the crux behind human life! I had to reach stage of enlightenment if I were to meet God in this very life!


My goals of life remaining distinctly clear... I finally cleared all hurdles of spiritual path! Do not remember how many times I had to eat hell for breakfast... how many contemplations of suicide... still, my resolve to find God always remained distinct and clear! Pursuing path detailed in Bhagavad Gita... I finally reached my goal of life... God Almighty himself!

All concepts like... is there life after death, meaning of afterlife... concept of heaven... definition of soul atman... what God Almighty meant finally became absolutely clear! I had practically become knower of all... gains omniscience for all practical purposes! This is how immortality is gained by human beings!

Immortality as per Hinduism does not mean going to heaven bodily! Immortality for all practical purposes means reaching stage of enlightenment in present life time and becoming knower of all! At this stage of life death carried no meaning... one finally became immortal! Immortality is never a physical stage of life... it is practically reaching cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
