Query: Hinduism Reincarnation Cycle... the Truth!
Reincarnation Cycle as per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is an absolute fact of life! However most human
beings world over understood the concept of reincarnation hinduism wrongly! How? As detailed in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism our soul atman... the spirit within is indestructible... can neither be created or
Something that could not be created or destroyed... how could it rebirth or reincarnate! The
concept of reincarnation as per Hinduism simply means our soul atman manifesting another body. The journey of life
as per Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism always belonged to our soul atman... the spirit within and never the manifest
To cleanse self of
dross impurities within... every soul atman manifests a chain of bodies to work out its karma! In the chain of
manifestations... the human form is manifested after our soul atman has already completed 7.3 million
reincarnations in insect, plant and animal form! In the remaining 1.1 million manifestations in human form our soul
atman is expected to reach stage of liberation!
From first manifestation to last... the effort of our soul atman always remained...
liberation from cycle of birth and death forever! The crux of Hindu reincarnation cycle lay in the fact 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!
After death of human body... our soul atman manifests a new form based on residual balance of
karma of that moment! Birth of soul atman in a new body is a misnomer! From first manifestation as an amoeba
(single cell formation) to last as human beings... the entire journey of 8.4 million manifestations is one single
span of life for a soul atman!
The entire life cycle of a soul atman that roughly completes in a maximum of 96.4 million
earthly years... the entire journey is one single span of life! In the circumstances... the reincarnation
beliefs... the reincarnation precept as explained in various encyclopedias world over is flawed! Hinduism
reincarnation cycle proves beyond doubt that our soul atman being indestructible only manifests one body of
As detailed in Bhagavad Gita... human form is the highest manifest stage in cosmic life
cycle! Only in human form our soul atman... the spirit within finally regained it’s lost original pure prime
pristine primordial form... the moment human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation
The concept of punarjanma (rebirth) in Hinduism is also flawed! When something never dies...
how could it rebirth! Our present manifest human form is limited to present life span of 70 to 80 years! In the
next manifestation after death of present body... our soul atman shall manifest a new form that is not the least
related to our present manifest physical form!
Soul atman remaining same... the form keeps changing! The closing balance of life at the time of
death of present body becomes the opening balance for the next manifestation... the new journey of life! If the
residual balance of karma at the time of death of body demands our soul atman manifesting form of a laborer... it
just could not manifest form of a Prince in next life!
Journey of life from one manifestation to another is controlled by inscrutable laws of
karma... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more! By controlling our karma... we could manifest
destiny... take absolute charge of life! As we had only one life to live... the present earthly sojourn... why not
travel spiritual path now and complete the journey!
We do not know what form our soul atman manifests in next life... it is in our interest that
we travel spiritual journey in present life! As detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism, God Almighty can only
be reached via path of pure spirituality... never religion... path of rituals! Travelling spiritual path is a
necessity of our soul atman... something none world over could change!
If we desire understanding Bhagavad Gita... if we desire understanding crux of life as detailed
in Hinduism... we need assimilating the fact that our soul atman being the absolute master and controller of human
body is the ultimate governor of life! From one life to another our soul atman keeps changing body similar as
changing of guards at Buckingham Palace!
Just as a student of class one promotes to class two... on death of manifest physical body...
our soul atman also manifested a new life form depending on residual balance of karma of that moment! The moment
human beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... all is over for soul atman within... one finally
reached cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
