What is reincarnation?
About Krishna is dedicated to preserving Shree Krishna’s identity and knowledge as directed by the holy scriptures of Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism). We believe that any religious philosophy not supported and documented in Sanatan Dharma in relation to Sanatan Dharma (also know as Hinduism) that are being preached to the mass is leading the world in the wrong direction. In the present time, there are many organizations, religious movements and Sampradaya (organization) profit and non-profit that has made Sanatan Dharma a tool to propagate their selfish propaganda for name, fame, money and economical gains at the cost of true knowledge and spiritual awareness.

About Krishna will do everything in it power and authority to only publish document, images, presentation, and other multimedia mediums that are reveling truth of Sanatan Dharma and supported by the scriptures. We consider Four Vedas, Shree Ramayan, Shree Bhagavatam, Shree Bhagavat Gita, Shree Mahabharat, and Upanishads as the principal doctrine, which is the base of Sanatan Dharma.

We affiliate with no organization that stands for hatred and violence in the name of God. About Krishna believes that all roads of faith lead to Supreme Godhead and peace if practiced by understanding rather than ego. We welcome all views from any religion regarding any topic to be discussed in open form meeting to gain insight in to true spiritual meaning regarding that topic. About Krishna organization believes that there is no man or women alive that can judge one and another for we are all searching for the truth, and it is only the Supreme Godhead that can judge us on our ways of actions and inactions.

About Krishna does not accept any donation or money from any organization; however, if you wish to help in the effort of preserving Sanatan Dharma then you are welcomed to submit your article related to the subject matter.

Reincarnation has been a central belief in many religious practices beside Vedic philosophy. Ancient Greek philosophers, African traditions, Kabbalah, Gnostic, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhist, Native Americans, and even Esoteric Christianity have entertained the idea of Reincarnation. Everyone wants to know what happens to us after death, or to our loved ones after their death. Does our being move on to some other reality or come back to this world or nothing happens. Does the action we do in this life have impact in other life after this body? If our spirit comes back, do we come back as human, or some other life form? We will try to explain the concept of reincarnation and what does Shri Krishna has say about this in Bhagavad-Gita.

Reincarnation mean to leave one body after death to take another body based on the desire left within us at the time of death. So if the body is dead what migrates is the question that comes up. According to most religions of the world the concept of individual spirit being different from it body has been accepted. In Vedic philosophy the individual spirit is call jiva-atma, and the consciousness that governs the entire creation is called Paramatma or Param Purusha or Shri Krishna. According to Shri Krishna there are two spirits that leaves in all individual bodies. One is jiva-atma (self) and other is Ishvara (Expansion of God that stays with every individual soul as guide and observer of our action and intentions). In Chapter 13 and Shloka 23 of Bhagavad-Gita it is stated by Shri Krishna:

“Yet in this body there is another, a transcendental enjoyer,
who is the Lord, the supreme proprietor,
who exists as the overseer and permitter, and
who is known as the Supersoul.”

Topic of Ishvara requires more explanation but in order to keep the focus on reincarnation we will leave this subject to the side for now. Shri Krishna in Bhagavad-Gita said that whatever one thinks about continuously in their life due to their association with material nature and senses, at time of death the same material nature mood and sense creates desire in consciousness that migrate us to full fill those desires in another body more suitable for that mood. According to Shri Krishna material nature consists of three modes—goodness (sattva), passion (rajas) and ignorance (tamas). When person living in his ordinary life is continuously bombarded with sense impulse and desires spiritual or materialistic, it results in three type of nature in us. Some stimulus creates nature in goodness (higher understand and knowledge with energy), other stimulus create a nature in passion (strong desire to fulfill with strong longing and endure), and other stimulus creates nature of ignorance (delusion, madness, indolence).

The environment and food we eat has great impact on the nature of our consciousness. The nature of this consciousness has direct impact on our intelligence, body, and life style. Thus which ever mode of nature we continuously reinforce in our lifestyle it will become predominate at the time of death because of it continuous association by the jiva-atma. In Bhagavad-Gita it is stated by Shri Krishna:

"And whoever, at the end of his life, quits his body remembering
Me alone at once attains My nature. Of this there is no doubt."
Chapter 8, Shloka 5

"Whateve state of being one remembers when he quits his body,
O son of Kunti, that state he will attain without fail."
Chapter 8, Shloka 6

“When one dies in the mode of goodness,
he attains to the pure higher planets of the great sages”
Chapter 14, Shloka 14

“When one dies in the mode of passion,
he takes birth among those engaged in fruitive activities;
and when one dies in the mode of ignorance,
he takes birth in the animal kingdom.”
Chapter 14, Shloka 15

“The living entities in this conditioned
world are my eternal fragmental parts.
Due to conditioned life,
they are struggling very hard with six sense,
which include the mind.”
Chapter 15, Shloka 7

“The living entity in the material world carries
his different conceptions of life from one body
to another as the air carries aromas. Thus he
takes one kind of body and again quits it to take another.”
Chapter 15, Shloka 8

“The living entity, thus taking another gross body,
obtains a certain type of ear, eye, tongue,
nose and sense of touch,
which are grouped about the mind.
He thus enjoys particular set of sense objects.”
Chapter 15, Shloka 9

As Shri Krishna stated we move from one body to another, as our desire requires. This continuous cycle can only be stopped when realizes his true self and surrender to the Ishvara (Supersoul) that is living in every aspect of this creation and sustaining it including our body.

When our body’s age causes it to decay and we leave this body to take another body (spiritual or material) we take our self in to the next life; however, because we are not self-realized most of our life we spending associating with our false self (ego – false personality). This false personality we call ego is continuously changing even in our currently life as we grow from childhood to youth, youth to adult, and adult to old age, and then to death. Even after death this false personality goes into next life, and continuous to change. In this life we all have experienced something similar where we like something or someone as child but now longer desire as adult because our false self (ego) values and needs are changed. As soon as we take another body, nature around us starts programming us using our new body’s sense and its environmental stimulus that we have to behave certain way, and the games starts again. If we are born again as human some people remember this false personality even in next life, and some forget as time removes it from our individual consciousness. Those that remember this false personality from previous life because of higher self awareness of our true self or strong impact of previous life are able to recall and communicate that to us sometime.

Many researchers have done research on reincarnation and provide many references to this concept. Dr. Ian Stevenson, founder of The Division of Perceptual Studies (DOPS) at University of Virginia has published a book on this called Twenty Case Suggestive of Reincarnation with ISBN number 9780813908724. There are many others researchers that have done this kind of research on reincarnation, but the verdict from scientific community is still out because it states that we don’t have enough studied subject. Also the subject that have been studied have some (not all) minor inaccuracy in their recalling their previous life environment like house structure, location of certain things, appearance of individual, and other minor details. Also another thing to take in to consideration is that time changes our landscape, people’s look, and even our memories due to the biasness of our desires still left in our consciousness. In the end reincarnation can be experienced by living it or by self realization of higher self and Ishvara (Supersoul).
