Query: What leads to atman soul manifesting Human Form? What is the role played by
balance of Karma?
The concept of birth by human beings has been explained in various essays
on my website. I shall explain it again!
Every single soul atman manifests a body... the human form based on the
residual balance of karma from the previous manifestations... positive or negative! In the given
circumstances it is apparently clear that the child chooses ones parents. Only when the chromosomes of the
child match those of parents... the germination of human life occurs!
For some reason... if matching parents are not available on Mother
Earth... the hibernating soul atman takes a seat either in heaven or hell! Based on the residual balance of
karma... if negative... the soul atman gets a seat in hell (Naraka in Hinduism)! If positive... the soul
atman merits a seat in heaven (Swarga in Hinduism).
Both heaven and hell exist in sun... heaven in the core of sun where
temperatures exceed millions of degrees centigrade. It is in such high temperatures... the soul atman feels
comfortable! Hell exists in the periphery of the sun where temperatures are considerably less. It is in such
low temperatures... the soul atman suffers for eternity!
No sooner matching parents become available... the hibernating soul atman
immediately manifests a human form... the human body!
In the play of karma... the soul atman acts as a Dhrista (onlooker)! It
is not within the powers of the soul atman to choose a body... the human form! Everything in the cosmic
system is directly governed by the law of karma... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing more or less! We
simply cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree!
As is the position of one KG of metal... in one hundred KG lump of metal
ore... similar is the position of the soul atman in the cosmic game of life! Of its own no soul atman can
ever purify. It needs manifesting karma through a body! Of its own... the soul atman is ever enlightened...
absolutely pure but mired in external impurities... it needs cleansing itself of the dross impurities
As the dross impurities within the soul atman remove... as the ignorance
of the human beings reduce... the soul atman scales higher reaches of life! The moment a soul atman reaches
the last leg of cosmic life... the 8.4 million manifestation... all is over for the soul atman within! Devoid
of all dross impurities within... the need for soul atman to manifest karma ceases forever!
The control of destiny always laid in the hands of mankind... the
individual human beings! Dictated by our bloated ego... we fail to recognize the dictates of our soul atman
within! Dominated by workings of our ego... most human beings in life fail to manifest destiny! Those who
do... achieve this feat by listening to the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman... that seems to come
from within our heart!
The form of a human being is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic
life cycle. It is only in the human form the soul atman regains its original pure pristine form... reaches
the 8.4 million manifestation! Can we still say... destiny is not in our control! As is our karma...
accordingly moulds our destiny! In the cosmic crux of life... even God Almighty acts as a Dhrista
In the game of karma and destiny... the individual self... every single
individual human being is the Karta... the game player... the master controller! No two soul atmans are ever
connected. As per the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... no two souls ever interfere in the working of
another. The laws of the cosmic system simply cannot be manipulated by one.
Most human beings in life never create a goal! In absence of a goal life
is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. Those without a goal in life... continue
blaming destiny... is there a remedy? Most successful people in life not only have a goal, but pursue that
goal with all eggs in one basket backed by the bulldog determination of Winston Churchill!
As per Jaina doctrines... based on the karma performed by one... the soul
atman of a human being can manifest the form of an animal in the next manifestation! Why? The human form is
manifested by the soul atman after crossing through 7.3 million manifestations in the insect, plant and
animal form. If the residual balance of karma of any manifestation lowers below the karma index of 7.300000,
it would result in soul atman manifesting the form of an animal!
It is true that the soul atman having manifested the human form based on
the residual balance of karma in any future manifestation can revert back to animal form! All is dependent
upon the karma performed by one. However... having reached the 8.4 million manifestation... no reversal of
the process is possible! The bud having bloomed into a flower can never become a bud again... it can never
The liberated soul atman always enters the abode of God... the kingdom of
God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). Vaikuntha... the kingdom of God is a point of no return. Until the
dissolution of the Cosmos occurs... the liberated souls' atmans always remain in Vaikuntha... kingdom of God
till eternity! At the time of dissolution of the Cosmos... all souls atmans automatically reach the 8.4
millionth manifestation... in whatever stage of manifestation they are!
This concept enumerated in Bhagavad Gita was not acceptable to
Mahavira... the prime reason why Jainism followed after the advent of Lord Krishna and Mahabharata! As per
Bhagwan Mahavira... in whatever stage of manifestation the souls' atmans are... after the dissolution of the
Cosmos... the souls' atmans start their journey of life from the same level they stood in the previous
Cosmos. Such a fantasy is simply not possible... Mahavira was wrong!
At the time of dissolution of the Cosmos... the size of the entire Cosmos
reduces to the size of half a thumb... the sacred Scripture of Bhagavad Gita is absolutely clear on this
point! Unless all souls' atmans reach their prime pristine original state... the size of the entire Cosmos
simply cannot reduce to the size of half a thumb. Devoid of all impurities within... the cluster of all
souls' atmans in the Cosmos occupy a volume of half a thumb.
In the circumstances... at the time of dissolution of the Cosmos... it
becomes imperative that all souls atmans reach the last leg of cosmic life... the 8.4 million
manifestation... facilitating the Cosmos to collapse! The collapse of the Cosmos... the dissolution of the
Cosmos is not an imaginary state... it occurs in numerous trillions of years... much beyond the comprehension
of most human beings. However, as human beings we need concentrate on our part of karma and reach the desired
goal of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation at the earliest!
If we assume the Cosmos having 64 souls atmans... then in a puzzle of 64
pieces... no sooner the child locates the placement of an individual piece of puzzle... he fixes the same!
The moment an individual soul atman reached the stage of salvation... it is placed in Vaikuntha... the
kingdom of God similar as the placement of an individual piece of puzzle.
The moment all 64 pieces of the puzzle are put in place... it is time for
collapse of the Cosmos! With a big bang... when the cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos... we
know as God Almighty explodes itself... starts a new cosmos... a new journey of life! The beginning and the
collapse of Cosmos is perennial... existing from times immemorial... beginningless!
May God give you strength to understand the intricacies of the cosmic

Full text of query: Sometimes I feel birth is our choice. like I
have choosen my parents, etc. May be wrong but I feel so, as soul had all the options option and as per its
nature or whatever circumstances beyond my imagination they may be it must have choosen the best for its
salvation. May be sometimes, the choice is not so good and what some call destiny, some call fruits of Karmas
and some call our individual response to circumstances the results are just opposite. Is it possible that we
are demoted or that after attaining the last leg of human form we go back to the form of insect, plant animal
