    Warning: There is nothing like reincarnation. Ones your circle of life is complete
    with regards to a plain of Existence... Does it make sense that you would live twice, thrice...a million times in the same Realm? No it does’nt. Your Prodigy goes on...which would cause complication, is’nt it.

    When we are reborn, it is in another plain of existence much like Heaven
  2. Reincarnation exists as per the Vedic scriptures.

    The term reincarnation is easily understood from the different parts of the word.

    ‘Re’ means again, repeated.
    ‘In’ is from Latin, and means “in”!
    ‘Carn’ in Latin is flesh (like carnivore, flesh eater).
    Incarnate means to be “in the flesh”, and
    reincarnate means to be in flesh again. And again and again and again.

    Knowledge from Yoga Texts

    We find reincarnation presented in our main yoga text the Bhagavad-gita:

    Bhagavad-gita 2:13

    As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change.

    Bhagavad-gita 2:22

    As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the soul accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.

    Bhagavad-gita 2:27

    For one who has taken his birth, death is certain; and for one who is dead, birth is certain.

    There are 3 main reasons of Reincarnation:
    1. Desire
    2. Attachment
    3. Karma
    Karma and Reincarnation

    Karma means action, as well as the resultant reactions to our activities. If a person acts piously the reactions will be good, whereas if he acts impiously he is bound to suffer the sinful reaction. This is called the law of karma, or as Jesus put it, “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

    If in the pursuit of his own sense gratification, the living being runs over others, treating them callously and causing them to experience pain, then he will take birth in a situation where he will suffer greatly and his endeavors to enjoy will be baffled. But if despite the fact that he is living for himself, he respects others and shows them kindness, then he will take a higher birth or he will have a greater facility to pursue his material folly.

    “Those situated in the mode of goodness gradually go upward to the higher planets; those in the mode of passion live on the earthly planets; and those in the mode of ignorance go down to the hellish worlds.” [B.g. 14:18]

    Material desire and reincarnation

    Not only do our actions create reactions which force a person to take on another material body, but our actions also develop a particular type of consciousness which determines the type of body we receive. For instance, if someone’s overriding desire in life is to surf, and he spends most of his time in the ocean, then there is a good chance that he will come back as a dolphin.

    In fact, many surfers will say that they wish they had a dolphin’s body, so that they could stay out riding the waves all the time and not have to come back onto land when it gets dark, or to do school or earn a living, etc. People get what they desire. Of course, not everyone who surfs will come back as a dolphin or shark, but if that is the overriding desire, then it is likely. Therefore, the way in which one acts in this life is instrumental in determining the type of body he will get in the next life.

    Desires and attachments cultivated during the lifetime of your gross material body do not die when the gross body dies. These desires remain with the self and act as a link with the next gross body. Material desire is the reason a person reincarnates. Lord Jesus Christ said:

    Mathew 6:19-21
    “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

    Material desire is the major reason a person reincarnates rather than returning to the kingdom of God. Material desires remain with the self and act as a link with the next gross body.

    Srimad Bhagavatam 4:29:76-77

    “The caterpillar transports himself from one leaf to another by capturing one leaf before giving up the other. Similarly, according to her previous work, the living entity must capture another body before giving up the one she has. This is because the mind is the reservoir of all kinds of material desires.”

    The subtle body is the reservoir of desires for sense gratification, and the gross body is the vehicle for carrying out those desires. The tongue is the external manifestation of the desire to taste. The sex organs are the external manifestation of the desire for sex pleasure. And the nose is the external manifestation of the desire to enjoy aromas. The sense organs are the link between sensual desires seated in the subtle body and the objects of sense pleasure.

    The Supreme witnesses our desires, knows the heart and mind of every individual self, and arranges for the fulfillment of these desires:

    Sri Isopanishad Mantra 8

    “Such a person must know in fact the Greatest of all, Who is unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated, the self-sufficient Philosopher Who is awarding everyone’s desire since time immemorial.”
