Lives and Reincarnation
(doctrine of reincarnation)
of past lives is an absolute truth. But the past lives belong to
our soul atman and not to the human being... the present self...
the physical manifested self! It is our soul atman... the spirit
within on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an
earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years. It is not within the capacity
of a human body to manifest a soul atman!
Ever since souls'
atmans separated from their source, God Almighty himself... they
desire regaining their original pure primordial pristine form! As
one KG of pure gold in a lump of hundred KG of gold ore cannot separate
itself of its own... the soul atman also requires a chain of 8.4
million bodies... to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities
cycle of 8.4 million manifestations by the soul atman necessitates
a maximum of 96.4 million earthly years. The entire span of 96.4
million earthly years is one life span for the soul atman. Amongst
8.4 million manifestations 1.1 million manifestations are in the
human form. During this period human beings are expected to reach
the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
The moment human
beings reached the stage of enlightenment... it announces the end
of the journey for the soul atman... the spirit within! The liberated
soul atman having regained its original lost pure primordial pristine
form... enters the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha
in Hinduism)... a point of no return!
human form is limited to one span of life... the present earthly
sojourn of 70 to 80 years! As the past life belongs to our soul
atman, the fruits of karma performed by us in the present human
form... also belong to our soul atman. The form of human beings
is simply a means to an end. We need to work... perform karma for
the sake of our soul atman!
feel agony that nothing belongs to us... the human form! But what
after the death of the body! Based on the residual balance of karma
of one manifestation... the soul atman moves ahead in life... body
of the body... manifestation after manifestation! Truthfully speaking...
we are a spiritual consciousness... a spiritual being manifesting
a human body!
We are not supposed
to remember the past. Why? What if we come to know our best friend
in present life was the cause of our death in last manifestation?
As per the karmic crux of life... our best friend was born into
the same fold to even out the karma in present life. Who knows what
awaits us in future life!
The theory of
reincarnation as put by religious masters, spiritual gurus and various
dictionaries and encyclopedias is totally flawed. The concept of
reincarnation... rebirth does not exist in the Cosmos. Reincarnation
has been defined as the rebirth of soul atman in a new body. When
our soul atman... the spirit within is indestructible... it neither
takes birth nor dies... how can it reincarnate?
Our soul atman...
the spirit within simply manifests body one after another. After
the death of the physical body... the soul atman manifests a new
form... a new body! When a student of class one enters class two...
one gets a new blazer... a new coat! The student being the same...
only the blazer changed... similarly our soul atman keeps changing
body after body!
of bodies by our soul atman... the spirit within is as simple as
changing of guards at Buckingham Palace. The entire life span of
96.4 million years being one journey of life for the soul atman...
the question of rebirth... reincarnation is totally ruled out! The
continuity of life that exists in the life of soul atman... defies
the theory of reincarnation!
of manifestation of bodies by our soul atman is best explained in
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita is one document that gives
explanation to every aspect of life... be it the journey undertaken
by the soul atman... or the physical manifested form!
