Does life reincarnate?

The karmic information envelopes the soul like electron cloud round around the nucleus in an atom and it passes from one life form to another life form whether it maybe the life form of animals or plants.

It is interesting to note that half of the world population believes in reincarnation, that is, whether it is a Hindu, a Jain, a Buddhist or a Taoist. But the other half of population, mostly, does not believe in reincarnation theory.

That simply means once we die we are snuffed out. However, those four religious beliefs make up half of the world population. Also, the theory of reincarnation has been supported by many scientific studies. The most accepted study by world community is that of late Stevenson, a professor of North Hampton University, Vrginiaia.

What happens after we die? The question is still unanswered. Isn’t it?

Let me try to answer this complex question using my little knowledge.

Suppose, our body is a loan that we get from mother earth and pay her back after we die, interestingly with no interest.

The food that we eat, say banana, or piece of bread, some part of it gets absorbed in our body and the unused part gets excreted through our body. The inner engineering mechanism carries out the entire process. This implies whatever food/water we take in is from mother earth.

We all admit that human body essentially is made of five fundamental elements and it consists of two entities -physical body from those elements and the inner intelligence, called soul from Brahman.

However, the source of these two entities is the same, the cosmic consciousness (a creation of pure awareness), or Para Brahman.

At this, let me stress that duality of matter and energy emerged out of cosmic consciousness, in fact, they are the same entity as per highly celebrated Einstein’s theory of relativity.

So, coming to the nature of life form, life is like a combination of hardware and software, in which body is a hardware and soul is a software.

The essence of life here I am referring to -is consciousness. The consciousness consists of genetic and epigenetic information (evolutionary memories) as well as super intelligent information, called ‘atman’.

The former two memories go with the dead body and soul goes out of the body in the form of Bio-energy or a wave of certain frequency, atman.

The essence of life that gets released from the body goes as the soul and looks for new shelter where it can sustain at least 48 hours after its previous shelter i.e. the deceased body.

Talking about the aspects of the essence of life, one aspect of life is the soul (energy aspect) and the other one is embedded in a dead body as genetic information in the DNA (material aspect of life).

The soul aspect is the energy which is never destroyed. It carries the essence of life and karmic memory with it.

The karmic information envelopes the soul like electron cloud round around the nucleus in an atom and it passes from one life form to another life form whether it maybe the life form of animals or plants.

The essence of life that gets released from the body goes as the soul and looks for new shelter where it can sustain at least 48 hours after its previous shelter i.e. the deceased body.

If somehow it misses to find a new shelter within 48 hours of person’s death, it is bound to travels as a wave (energy) in the free space (astral world).The quest of atman continues until it finds a new shelter or attains liberation from the cycles of birth and death and gets dissolved in the vast ocean of cosmic consciousness.

This is all about the state of the soul. But the karmic information, on the other hand, a person has accumulated in this life and his/her previous lives also carried along with his/her soul.

In that sense, the soul acts like a carrier wave and karmic information is modulated by this carrier wave into the astral dimension (a platform between new life and previous life).

A person in his life time accumulates karma (bad karma or good karma). if some person accumulates good karma from this life and from many of his previous lives, it is very likely that he is liberated from the sufferings of birth and death that means the karmic cloud no longer envelopes the atman of a person, then the pure atman gets dissolved in the cosmic consciousness (Shiva or Brahman and whatever ).

Shiva himself is main form of consciousness, his divine power of consciousness guide he himself create, balance and destroy. Like Atman is generating from his own consciousness to the entire world, so we human is one of soul of Shiva. In that process, Atman is form of small energy, which is not destroy by fire, water, and other means, but it can transfer one phase to another by travelling in space and time. In that process, some of Atman reincarnates. This reincarnation philosophy is strongly believed in Buddhism—Buddhism means—Source of pure energy which actually forms in dual nature.

In physics, matter has dual nature— wave and particle—in a similar manner, Atman itself dual form which travel in space and time. Atman always connect to eternal source of energy—pure form of energy—which always guide into the Karmic world. In a Karmic world, Life has presence in physical form of matter.

However, a person who has accumulated bad karma in this life and many of his/her previous lives is bound to go through sufferings of births and deaths. It is also possible that a person can burn his bad karma in any of his/ her life by performing good karma in any lives. There is every probability that he/she may get liberation from the sufferings and get connected to Brahman. It all depends on how good karma is in one’s life and therefore it is likely that bad karma may be burned.

Taking this idea into perspective, here, I would like to emphasize that the genetic and evolutionary information’s do not pass from one life to another but soul and karmic information pass from one life to another.

As I discussed earlier, consciousness has two forms either in matter form or in energy form. The fundamental five elements of nature like earth, water, fire, air and space are the manifestation of the same source.

That is the reason why Hindus personify anything to God whether it is a fire, space, mountain, river, ocean, trees, grass and even a rock. This is similar to Buddhism, Jainism and Bon etc.

The thinking is that the divine is embedded in them. That is why they pay respect to anything with ‘Namaste ‘posture. Namaste has deeper meaning “the divine in me bows to the divine in you”.

In Hindu culture or in Buddhist culture the gesture of wish is the same, Namaste when two persons see each other. People who have-no knowledge of the reality of creation think that Hindus are lousy fools. Does this sort of behavior of Hindus look foolish/funny knowing that the whole reality (divine) is manifested either in matter form or energy form?

In summary, the pitch of this present text is that bad karma or good karma keeps on accumulating in the new life when it passes from one life form to another.

Taking into consideration of the scientific search of Professor Stevenson, the belief of major population of the world and our own thinking, though speculative, it definitely suggests that life reincarnates.

Taking this idea into perspective, here, I would like to emphasize that the genetic and evolutionary information’s do not pass from one life to another but soul and karmic information pass from one life to another.

But the essence of life of a person who brought his good karma (Sat karma) gets connected to cosmic consciousness called Brahman or Shiva.

In another words, it merges into infinity or nothingness, while the other one because of his Dush karma keeps on revolving through cycles of several lives and deaths till the end of merger of everything into Shiva (Great dissolution or big crunch).
