603. The Design Behind Reincarnation!!!!

To carnate is “to get personified in flesh” And reincarnate means to “re-enter in to the flesh.” Some religions believe in reincarnation and some believe in rebirth while some do not believe either. The explanation given to the natural way of giving the individual soul a chance to evolve higher to Enlightenment is Reincarnation.

We have all had many lives before the present one and are expected to have more unless we make a thought to stop it. 

How to stop this cycle of birth and death? 

The moment we have repaid all our karmic debts and have not engrossed any then we are liberated. This means the soul will still exist, but will no longer be pulled back to be born in a physical body. Even science is now inclined to believe in reincarnation after many cases of individuals remembering their past lives surfaced. There have been extensive researches done by scientists, psychiatrists and parapsychologists during the past decades and are documenting it for further researchers to investigate in study of reincarnations.

What exactly happens to the Jeevatma (Soul) at the death of a person is illustrated in “Garuda Purana” as thus, at death the Soul leaves the Stula Deha (Physical body) which subjected to recycle afterwards. But the Soul dwells on in the Sukshma Deha (Subtle body) also called the Astral body. 

Separation of Jivatma and body is a great shock to the subtle body, especially if there was great attachment to the physical body. This subtle body is the mental faculty consisting of Manas (Mind), Buddhi (Intellect), Ahamkara (Ego) and Chitta (Memory) of the person which is crammed with unfulfilled ambitions and untold desires. The subtle body exists in the non-physical dimension called the astral plane. Here it continues to have remorseful or complacence experience of the result of all the good and bad deeds done in its past life span until it expiates. Then it is ready to be reborn again in another physical body as a new born. 

There is no hard and fast rule that a person will take birth as human again, he is entitled to have the benefit of taking the womb of any creature according to his wish or whims and fancies. Each reincarnating subtle body is allotted a home and a family which can help it to fulfill its unfulfilled ambitions and untold desires. Again the new life kick starts. 

The new set of circumstances in the brand new body is confusing. The intellectual and emotional aspects are dormant, the subtle body cannot express its memory, so it laughs and cries when it cannot recognize anyone, or when it wishes to express itself. Though in the new womb the subtle body remembers all the intellectual and emotional capabilities, the new born once out of the womb forgotten its past birth and has become accustomed to the new conditions and the new parents.

As we graduate from school and go to college and we never think of going back again to school exactly the same way after enlightenment we do not have to again experience the vileness of this earthly existence, but continue to evolve in our inner bodies to merge with the Supreme. 

Reincarnation is believed by the Jains, the Sikhs, the Hindus, the Buddhists, certain Jewish sects, and many indigenous faiths. Even Christianity originally taught reincarnation, but formally renounced it in the twelfth century.

Lord Krishna tells Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita “As worn-out garments are shed by the body; Worn-out bodies are shed by the dweller within the body. New bodies are donned by the dweller, like garments.
