Is There Rebirth? The Answer Is An Emphatic Yes!

Is There Rebirth ? The Answer Is An Emphatic Yes !

The Hindu scriptures have dealt with the rebirth phenomenon much earlier than any other modern civilization.  The Vedas, Upanishads,  and,  above all, Bhagavad-gita, especially its chapter 2 & 6,  have dissected this complex issue in a scientific and clinical manner.   Assuring Arjuna not to worry about the fate of his body Krishna says ,” For the soul there is never birth nor death .Nor, having once been does he ever cease to be.  He is unborn, eternal,  ever-existing, undying and primeval.  He is not slain when the body is slain.”(Bhagavad-gita 2.20)

Our psuedo -secularists and worshipers of scientific superstitions might make these declarations butt of ridicule but leading thinkers in past have come to held the insights of Indian sages in high esteem.  For instance,Emerson states that ‘ The soul comes from without into the human body,as into a temporary abode,and it goes out of it anew…it passes into other habitations,for the soul is immortal.’  Even Socrates is not afraid to conclude that ‘I am confident that these truly is such a thing as living again,that the living spring from the dead,and that the souls of the dead are in existence.’

Tolstoy who believes that fate of man is to morph into God categorically states that ‘ As we live through thousands of dreams in our present life,so is our present life only one of many thousands of such lives which we enter from the other more real life …and then return after death.’   One hopes we learn to respect and honour our cultural legacy in an intelligent fashion rather than criticizing it to be in tune with with modernity !
