Query: Can we explain Hindu Theology without bringing
in the concept of previous birth?|
Can we try to explain the concept of a flower without making one
feel the smell of a flower? If I need to explain the concept of milk ... then I need to also explain the
source from where the milk is derived ... how the cow is fed with the grass ... and for the grass to grow we
need big fields ... and if these fields are not cultivated how do we expect to get good quality
On earthly plane, we visualize everything from the
point of view of senses. Anything beyond the concept of senses is not clearly understood. To understand the entity
of a human being ... we need to understand who created it and the purpose behind its creation. The human body is
not a creation of the mankind ... it is our Atman the soul within which has manifested the body ... in the cosmic life
span of 8.4 million manifestations (a total cosmic journey of 96.4 million years) ... what is the value of a
70 to 80 years life span of a human being?
We need to understand the basics ... it is Atman (our soul within) that
is governing ... it has taken the body and not the vice versa. Our atman the soul within needs a series of
manifestations for it to liberate from the cycle of birth and death forever. The form
of a human being is the last leg in the theory of evolution. Before the atman soul has manifested a
human body for the first time ... it has already passed through the various phases of evolution ... the body of
an amoeba to start with, then an insect, a plant and finally being born as an animal.
How in the circumstances it is possible that we can even think of
understanding concept of cosmos in Hinduism or any religion of the world unless we understand the underlying
truth ... the truth of our atman the soul within. It is only the ego of a human being that
sometimes prevents us from assuming that there is a God. There are Human Beings who want
immortal in present life and that too in physical manifest form. How can that be possible ... it
is our atman the soul within which gets liberated from cycle of Birth and Death ... it is our atman the soul
within which becomes free forever ... what is the significance of a human being except that it helps Atman
the soul within to expedite its journey.
The concept of a previous birth or the next birth is misunderstood. There
is nothing of this nature that exists in the cosmic system. Had Human Beings possessed the power to be reborn
... if only it was the human being, which had manifested the atman soul, only then this anomaly would have
truthfully stood its ground. We are born and we die ... nothing is in our control ... the governing factor
for every human being is the karma ... the residual Karma from each birth manifested by an atman the soul
within which gets carried forwarded onto the next life through the chromosomes.
We Human Beings are really to be pitied upon ... we do not have the power
even to create the smallest particle existing in the Cosmos ... yet, it is only as a Human Being that an
atman the soul within can get liberated ... in no other life form can one achieve Moksha Salvation ... the highest and
the ultimate power available in the cosmos is still with a human being ... the power to realize self and merge with
the absolute consciousness.
Every seed in the Cosmos in order to germinate needs conducive
environment ... after it grows into a beautiful tree ... can this tree be proud of its own self ... knowing
well that whatever flowers and the fruits it produces can never be enjoyed by the tree itself. The fruits are
meant for atman the soul within ... the tree only has to carry out its duty ... its Karma and wither out at the
appropriate time. After the death of the tree ... the new seeds thus produced shall again get a new life ...
manifest as a new plant ... totally unconnected with the earlier plant life (manifestation).
What is it that makes us believe in the system of God ... in this life I
may be a very nice person ... never having committed a sin in life ... yet I
may suffer at the hands of God. My only son dies. What was the logic behind this unless, the residual Karma of atman soul of my son
had to suffer because of the sins in the past life. In this life we do not have any control whatsoever over the actions of the
past life. The residual Karma of which none has any knowledge is governing. We reap ... what we sow! Nothing
more or less. In the balance sheet of life ... everything gets squared up maybe not within this life ...
maybe in the next or the next life.
What we actually desire is that Human Beings must live in the present ... why brood
over the past or the future ... agreed! Who desires to venture into the areas of which we have no knowledge or
control? Yet, when an untoward incident occurs in life that is not related to the deeds of this life ... we all get
affected. We are bitterly disappointed with the system of God ... why are we made to suffer in this life for the
actions of our earlier lives. Why did God made such a system?
In the cosmic hierarchy ... the system is like that-
Suppose I have been awarded a lottery that states that I am entitled to a journey in first-class in the first train
to any destination within the country. Now the next train that arrives in the station is a passenger train ... it
does not have a first-class. What is the alternative ... I have to wait ... I have to wait for the next train ...
the next life (the next manifestation) to occur before the deed can be executed. The prime reason why we sometimes
get rewarded in this life all of a sudden because of actions in the past life. Our deeds in present life
did not command any reward but nonetheless we were rewarded for the actions of the past life.
The cosmic system created by God is like that ... we do not have the
power to interfere. If you do not believe or want to believe in the system of God ... who cares! The
switching over of the residual Karma from one life to another cannot be compared to the pending work as
stated by you. The comparison made by you is absolutely wrong. in present life you must have observed that
whenever a chartered accountant prepares balance sheet ... then whatever is the closing balance of this year
is carried forward to the next year. In the balance sheet of the coming year the opening balance is the
closing balance of the earlier year (the earlier manifested life) ... the balance sheet goes on and so does
the company ... similarly, in the balance sheet of life ... the opening balance ... the residual Karma gets
automatically transferred to the next life.
Do not try to view the cosmic system as a human being as senses have
their limitations. It is only beyond when we rise above the mundane matters ... higher on the Spiritual plane
... become god realized ... only then can we correctly understand the system of God. Senses were created by
God to live the physical manifested life in a coordinated manner. Standing on the ground floor of the Empire
State building you cannot try to visualize the whole of New York ... the vision is not available ... you need
to climb to the top to see the whole of New York and beyond. and for this you need to awaken your kundalini ... unless and until our kundalini is fully
awakened we cannot Realize God.
It is Bhagavad Gita and only
Bhagavad Gita ... the most
sacred Scripture in Hinduism ... the doctrine preached by Lord Krishna ...
which can make us understand the concept of the cosmos in its entirety. The relationship between an atman
soul and the body, the migration from one body to the another, the story of the Big Bang, the
concept of Maya, the beginning
less Cosmos ... and what not ... all becomes clear like ABCD.

aspects of Hindu Theology, without bringing in the aspect of next birth or previous birth? The other world -
Heaven or Hell cannot be definitely outside the present 'JAGAT' - the Universe. Either here or there, either
as a earthworm or an Eagle or an evolved Saint does not make any difference. Then why should one talk about
births at all? Pl be kind enough to explain. ( I do not believe in the carryingover or pending business inthe
Good's Kingdom. Such unresolved matters being carried over is possible obly in govt offices and
