Something about Life after death! Can we communicate with the atmans (souls) of our near and dear
Life after death is the most queried question on the Internet.
Why the subject life after death carries so much curiosity? Is it because
the death of a loved one makes the basic instinct in every human being come alive? Firstly, we desire to
establish a contact with the departed soul. Secondly, there always remains a query as to what will happen to
us after our death!
Shall we come back again and manifest another body or the life ends
itself within this life! This query of life after death disturbs every single human being on mother earth.
The prime reason that we work day and night to accumulate materialistic riches and in the end part of life
everything remains behind... is absolutely disturbing. We become wise in the field of our study and in a
stroke of fate all would become useless. Why?
Why do we continue slogging on without ever contemplating upon the
subject of life after death? Why can not every individual human being live like JRD Tata... a Karma Yogi par
In his lifetime JRD Tata never built a house for himself... what to say
of worrying for the next life! He may or may not have believed in the continuity of life after death but one
thing was absolutely clear to him. And that was, "we have only got only one life to live"! He truly lived
this life to its best.
JRD Tata was an exemplary in the fact that he lived like a true trustee
of God. He believed that everything owned by the Tata Empire truly belonged to God. And he was only a mere
trustee in the hands of God. His only duty was to act as the maintainer... a true trustee on behalf of God
and see to it that whatever has been placed in his charge never dips in value.
As a true trustee JRD Tata had no worries at all. As everything belonged
to God... according to JRD the worries also belonged to God. And why should he worry on behalf of God.
Whether there existed life after death or not... nothing mattered to him! What mattered to him most in
present life was caring for the objects placed in his custody by God Almighty.
As a true custodian of God JRD Tata lived like a true Karma Yogi. He may
or may not have known or believed in the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita but practicing the doctrine of Bhagavad
Gita every moment of his life was his forte. He truly lived like a king... one who had the direct blessings
of God Almighty.
The present scion of the Tata Empire... Ratan Tata is almost in
contradiction to the beliefs of JRD Tata. Ratan Tata feels that everything owned by the Tata Empire belongs
to him. And in taking care of things as a manager... he is losing the true essence of life. The life as was
truly lived by JRD Tata is completely missing in Ratan Tata.
In the doctrine of the trustee and the onlooker relationship (God
Almighty has been considered as an onlooker for he never interferes at any stage in the creation of his) one
thing is explicitly clear. And the message that we are not supposed to delve into the question of life after
death is very clear... for it is beyond the control of normal human beings to do so!
What our next manifestation maybe would never be told to us by God. Such
a thing never exists in the system of God. Why? If I were ever to know that my best friend in present life
was responsible for my death in one of my earlier manifestations... how would it affect my present
relationship with my best friend! Probably I would be after his blood all the time. After all...
accountability has to be there!
This is where God forbid human beings to know about their past or the
future lives. It is only very accomplished sages and Saints who are sometimes able to look into the past and
the future of human beings. This faculty demands that it not be misused for any commercial purposes lest the
power gets withdrawn by God Almighty.
Of all the things one very pertinent question remains and that is whether
the atmans (souls) of the departed beings rotate nearby the family they have already manifested into. Yes, it
is not only a possibility but a confirmed fact. Why?
As per theory of karma... every individual Atman soul which is bonded to
any other Atman soul is likely to manifest in the same family. The reason that it is the only way that these
two atmans (souls) can work out their Karma and neutralize it for ever! This neutralization of Karma is the
biggest asset of mankind. Whoever understands the philosophy is a true master of Spirituality.
The bonding Karma aka klesha in Jainism and Hinduism is the governing factor in the cosmic system of God Almighty.
As long as there is the balance of klesha between two atmans (souls)... it is but not possible for these two Atmans
to escape each other. They have to manifest into the same family again and again until this bonding klesha is
It is most likely that our dying grandfather or the grandmother may be
reborn as a child of the daughter or the son in the family. Only then the continuity of life in the cosmic
system of God can be maintained. However, for one to know the true identity of life in the previous life has
been forbidden by God for ever.
This cannot be... every individual human being has been prohibited to
look back into the past or the future to know the identity of life as it existed then or it may exist further
on. We come across many instances in life when we sometimes feel so much bonded to the newly born child. We
fail to understand that he or she, the newly born child was our mother or the close relative who met
accidental premature death in earlier life.
Like the fragrance of a flower or the presence of God which cannot be seen by the physical senses but can always be
felt... the same atman having manifested into the family can be directly experienced by those who really cared for
the departed soul.
Further on if two atmans (souls) bond to each other and develop a klesha
of the order that nothing can separate them then, it is most likely that the relationship would continue in
the lives to come. It need not necessarily be the old relationship but the relationship as such would
It is possible that a husband and wife truly attached to each other in
present life after separation may rejoin as mother and son, daughter and father, mother and daughter or
father and son. It can be any relationship for that matter.
Sometimes we may have observed that the grandson is deeply attached to the grandfather or the grandmother. It is
only possible based on logical conclusions that the relationship has extended beyond the past manifestation. It is
only the relationship of the past
life which has flowered into the present life.
As we have been prohibited to look into the past or the future... we must
contend with the present life and live life like a true Karma Yogi... one as lived by JRD Tata, a Karma Yogi
par excellence. In following these dictates of God we are inherently following whatever is expressed in the
doctrine of Bhagavad Gita put forward by Lord Krishna.
Life goes on and on and we are not supposed to get affected by the
departing of souls in the family. Memories sometimes do disturb us but so is the system built by God
Almighty. As we are not supposed to interfere in the affairs of his (the God Almighty)... trying not to
approach Tantrics for knowing the truth of the past manifestations is the best solution.
Every atman soul manifests a body based on theory of karma. As comes the time to depart nothing... not even God
Almighty would interfere! We feel bereaved but then a new hope... a new life gets generated in the process. Time is
the best healer. Why? Simply because it is only with time that all matters would come to rest. Time is the best
healer for all anxieties!
The seven birth relationships between a husband and wife or even promises
of spending thousands of lives together is only merely a saying. Who is our husband in present life may
become the wife of someone another... Maybe in the immediate next manifestation! Who knows what? Why worry of
the future when we do not have powers even to control our present.
Taking control of destiny is possible only for the chosen few. JRD Tata
was one of them. He lived life on his own terms. He never settled for anything less than hundred percent
perfection. This man of steel will cherish the hearts of many Indians for times to come... he was one of the
best examples of how life is supposed to be lived.
Never brooding into the past or the future must be our forte... this is
what Lord Krishna taught us in his famous doctrine of Bhagavad Gita. We must always remember that everything
belongs to God and every living Jiva nay every human being is but an instrument in the hands of God. We only
have to live life as a true trustee. Only then we can live like a king.
Brooding into the issue of life after death is just prohibited by
Bhagavad Gita. The wounds inflicted upon us by the sudden departure of our loved one maybe deep but time
shall heal everything. Why brood into the past or the future and spoil the present! Why worry at all about
life after death!
We must all live a kings life... this is what the doctrine of Bhagavad
Gita teaches us all.
