God Creation Reincarnation Reincarnation Indian Philosophy Rebirth Mods

Query: Reincarnation in Hinduism... what is the role of Reincarnation in Hinduism?

Vijay Kumar:
Reincarnation as we know in Hinduism is the basic essence of the cosmic system ... the system of God Almighty. Even in the English dictionary the meaning of the word reincarnation is wrongly given ... those who have written the dictionary probably do not understand what reincarnation means. Dictionary meaning says, "rebirth of soul in successful bodies" ... For a soul there is never a rebirth and there is nothing like the term successful bodies.

I am explaining the concept from the beginning ... from the beginning of the cosmos ... the origin of the whole cosmic system ... with the Big Bang itself.

Even before we discuss the concept of the Big Bang ... we need to understand the basic cosmic structure. In the cosmic system there is no value attached to the materialistic world ... everything contained in the cosmos is but atoms and molecules ... there is only gaseous formation as far as the Cosmos is concerned. It is only when the energy known as atman the soul within manifests a body ... do we come across the materialistic world ... the world we can perceive and feel through our senses and the mind.

When we talk of the cosmic system ... we talk of a system much beyond the comprehension of all the five senses. Let us take a bolder in our hands. From the materialistic point of view it is a solid mass ... yet, in the cosmic system it is but a cluster of atoms and molecules ... nothing else! If something is not clear you can ask a student of physics or chemistry to explain further.

We all know that the cosmic system is without a boundary ... the creation of the cosmos happens with a Big Bang... and what does this Big Bang mean. Big Bang means that total energy contained in the Cosmos ... the whole total sum of energy which would be created if the whole Cosmos were to collapse (the time of the pralaya in Hinduism) ... then this massive energy is unable to contain itself and it again explodes with a Big Bang.

This massive source of energy is what we call God Almighty ... this is the sum total of all purified atmans souls present in the Cosmos at any stage of time. As per Bhagavad Gita in Hinduism ... the size of this energy is but the size of half a thumb ... does this mean that the combined power of all Atmans souls in the purified from is but the size of half a thumb ... yes, and this is what we call God Almighty.

Now, the Big Bang having occurred ... all atmans souls get scattered all over the Cosmos ... it also conquers with the famous saying that "God is everywhere" ... as all Atmans are but a minuscule form of Parmatman (God Almighty) ... we can safely say God is everywhere. Parmatman (God Almighty) stands for Param Atman (the super soul, God Almighty Creator himself).


Now the beginning of the cosmos has started ... it takes but billions of years for an environment conducive enough to be created so that the Atmans souls can manifest a body. and why do this Atmans souls need to manifest a body ... it is because these atmans souls cannot purify itself. It needs a body to perform the Karma and remove the dross within. All dross having removed, atman the soul within comes back to its pristine form. Having liberated forever from the cycle of birth and death we now say that so-and-so gained enlightenment ... Moksha ... Salvation or Self Realization.

At the time of the Big Bang what actually happens is that all Atmans are in their pristine pure form. As they travel towards the outer periphery of the fast expanding Cosmos ... it gets mired with impurity. It comes back to its pristine pure form only after having traveled a journey of 8.4 million manifestations (a total cosmic travel of 96.4 million years). Every atman the soul within starts the journey as an amoeba (single cell formation) and subsequently evolves into an insect, then a tree, an animal and finally a human being.

Every human being we see on earth has already traveled a cosmic journey of above 85 million years and completed above 7.5 million manifestations. The figures are staggering and surprising yet true. It is not as a human being we have traveled the journey. It is atman the soul within on its cosmic journey. It reincarnates again and again until the final goal … the 8.4 millionth manifestation arrives. atman the soul within is always alive and existing ... as for the dictionary meaning how can it have birth ... it only manifests a body in one life after another. The garb of a human being is but for the present life.

I shall further explain this concept- When I was in school I used to get a new blazer every three years. When I had the new blazer ... I thanked God as the old blazer was given away to the servant's children. I always looked forward to the year when I shall get a new blazer ... every atman the soul within when it reaches the end part of the manifested life ... an ailing body of an old man or a lady ... we weep for one of us to whom we were emotionally attached is passing away ... from the angle of atman the soul within it is very happy ... it is going to get a new blazer (a new body) in the next life.


How distinct the comparison is ... Yet true. We always live in two worlds. One is the physical manifested life ... the life we Human Beings live and other is the life of atman the soul within which is a non breakable cosmic journey ... a continuous process of changing a body one after another ... reincarnation continues without interruption from one life to another!

Who knows what garb is taken by atman the soul within in the next life for depending upon the residual Karma it is possible that atman the soul within that has already manifested a human body can be reverted back to the animal kingdom. Suppose one migrates from the animal kingdom to the form of a human being at number 70. and if we are born at number 72 based on the residual Karma of past lives (which gets transferred from one life to the another through chromosomes) then if we commit sins in this life which accumulates minus three for us then in the next life we be born at number 69 and for a human being to be born we need number 70. Hence atman the soul within shall have to manifest an animal body.

Now I shall explain how Atmans souls attach impurities and why they need a body to purify themselves. Why is it not possible for them to purify without the help of a body. Suppose in a lump of hundred KG of silver ore we have one KG of pure silver then for extracting one KG of pure silver from the silver ore we need to separate out 99% impurities. One KG of silver is always present in the silver ore no matter in how many pieces we break the silver ore.


Further, to separate one KG of silver from the hundred KG lump of silver ore we need to process it through the mining machinery (similarly as an Atman, the soul within needs a body). One KG of pure silver is atman the soul within in its purified form. The lump of hundred KG of silver ore is an atman the soul within in its impure state.

As we process the silver ore for separating out one KG of silver ... comes a stage when one KG of pure silver is present in 85 KG of lump of silver ore ... 15 KG of impurities having removed. In the case of atman the soul within the manifestation as various kinds of insect is over. Next atman the soul within can manifest as a tree. Subsequently one KG of pure silver is present in 50 KG of silver ore, then in 15 KG of silver ore and finally one KG of silver is present in 10 KG of silver ore. The stage has come when atman the soul within has already manifested the bodies of an insect, a tree and an animal ... now it can only manifest as a human being.

Now, one KG of pure silver requires to be separated from nine KG of impurities. Our atman the soul within now reincarnates as a human being again and again until all the nine KG of impurities are removed. What we now finally have is one KG of pure silver ... atman the soul within having reached the last leg of its cosmic journey has achieved Salvation Moksha ... free forever from cycle of Birth and Death it gains Liberation forever from the various manifestations. The need to reincarnate again and again is over. One has become Buddha, Mahavira. Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed.


Every single atman the soul within has to complete cosmic journey ... there is no escape until we cut short the Karma (that is remove all the dross ... the 99 KG impurities) and finally emerge as a pure Atman (one KG of pure silver). The process of reincarnation continues for every being (Jiva) present in the Cosmos ... none can escape the cycle of Karma for without practicing Karma ... atman the soul within cannot purify itself. It is only the residual Karma which carries on from one life to the another and this is possible only through the process of reincarnation ... Reincarnation meaning that our atman the soul within has to manifest a body again and again until it liberates free forever from cycle of Birth and Death.

Reincarnation is not a theory ... no it is not a concept ... it is the truth of our own self ... it is a burning proof of the existence of an atman the soul within without which there would never have been a form of an insect, plant, animal and finally a human being. If we are all there ... it confirms the presence of the process of reincarnation. This process is also proved otherwise ... no human body can survive without an atman the soul within ... yet an atman the soul within can survive without a body. For life to go on ... the process of reincarnation ... the manifestation of a body by an atman soul is a must. Without it ... the Cosmos itself cannot survive nor exist.

In the process of reincarnation there comes a time when matching parents for a manifestation to occur is not present. atman the soul within is unable to get a body in the absence of matching parents. If I am on number 69 (taking a scale of one is to hundred) then I need to have matching parents with number 69 so that a child can be born to them.

On the cosmic scale there are 8.4 million times of manifestations. A long journey ... yet, many times it happens that matching parents are not available ... it is this period when atman the soul within either resides in Swarga Heaven or Naraka hell depending upon the residual Karma. It is only when matching parents are available this Atman shall manifest a body. and, only after manifesting a body can the soul get liberated from cycle of Birth and Death.

In Hinduism, it is absolutely clear that Salvation, Moksha, Liberation, enlightenment or Self Realization is only possible after manifesting the garb of a human being. One can never gain Salvation Moksha either as an insect, a tree or an animal ... both while remaining in Swarga Heaven or Naraka hell. Swarga Heaven and Naraka hell are interim stages for atman the soul within until it gets a form ... a matching body. Anyone desirous of gaining the kingdom of Heaven is absolutely mistaken ... one must always seek getting Liberation (Salvation) forever from cycle of Birth and Death and become a man god like Buddha, Mahavira, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed.

I do hope you get the concept described above. Further queries are welcome. Do not hesitate to put forward any query you may have.

Full text of query: Hi. I am writing a research paper of 4000 words this summer. The topic concerns reincarnation in Hinduism. As I am sure you know, 4000 words is a lot and I wanted to see if you could give me some more information as to what is the role of reincarnation in Hinduism. Once again, I greatly appreciate it.
