The Reincarnation of one's past life and its verification

The Reincarnation of one's past life and its verification - Turnspiritual.in, Turn Spiritual

Reincarnation or Rebirth is one of the core beliefs of Hinduism religion. In Hinduism we say it Punarjanma. Many Hindus deeply believe in Punarjanma ( Reincarnation or Rebirth ). Not just Hindus, but even people belong to Buddhism and Jainism believe in Rebirth.

So, today I thought of sharing some important information regarding the Reincarnation of one's past life and its verification by Swami Satprakashananda of Ramakrishna Math from his book " How is a Man Reborn ? ". And, here it is. Just go through.





According to Patanjali, by a special method of meditation a person can awaken the memories of his past life.

The fact that we do not remember the previous lives we lived does not disprove the doctrine of reincarnation. It is often argued: if we lived before as human beings why do we not remember our past incarnations ? Since we do not remember them, the theory of reincarnation is not acceptable.

But the point is, our existence or non-existence does not depend on our memory. We do not have the recollection of our childhood days even. Does it mean we did not exist as children ? We are liable to forget early periods of this very life. No wonder we do not remember our former life or lives. And it is a great blessing that we do not. Otherwise our present existence would have been complicated to the extreme. There would have been many a pretender, to say the least.

Even though human beings in general are oblivious of their previous lives, yet there have been exceptional cases of individuals in ancient and modern times who had memories of their past incarnation or incarnations. In many instances their recollections of past lives were verified.

According to Patanjali who is considered as Father of Modern Yoga, by a special method of meditation a person can awaken the memories of his past life. As stated in his Yoga-aphorisms : " As a result of perception of subliminal impressions one gains the knowledge of former lives. The Sanskrit term for such recollection is " Jatismara ".

The Buddha is said to have remembered all his past lives. Sri Krishna speaks of the past incarnations : " O Arjuna, many are the lives I have passed through and thou too. But I know them all, whilst thou knowest not, O Scorcher of foes ".

So, by these instances we could conclude that, Reincarnation ( Punarjanma ) exists. But, we are not able to recollect those past lives because of our limitations. So, if one could go beyond the limitations by the special method of meditation prescribed by Patanjali, he/she could recollect their past life experiences for sure.
