We all have had many rebirths in the past. This body of ours is only one of the bodies in which your soul lives now. It lived in many other bodies in the previous births of yours. A person eveolves into a great soul only in evolution of his soul & becomes a great soul after getting knowledge of the God. Below verse of Bhagwat Gita points to that.

"bahunam janmanam ante
jnanavan mam prapadyate
vasudevah sarvam iti
sa mahatma su-durlabhah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Seven verse 19)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna : After many births and deaths / after taking many rebirths, he who is actually in knowledge of God, surrenders unto Me, knowing Me to be the cause of all causes and Lord of this universe. Such a great soul is very rare."

Now do you believe in rebirth? Do you believe in your previous lives? What you were in your past lives? How many births have you been through prior to this life? How one is reborn? How soul travels from one body to the other? If all such questions are of any interest to you then this article shall also be of some interest to you.

All the Hindu & Buddhist religion is replete with rebirth stories. As per the philosophy of both the religions, soul of an individual being travels at death from one body to the other. In the case of Lord Buddha, he was able to see all his previous births with vivid clarity. Many Yogis & persons advanced in meditation can also see all their previous lives vividly. So can you if you are also advanced in meditation. As per Lord Buddha an individual soul goes through innumerable births & you have been in different bodies in your past lives before you were born this time. As per him this continuum of births was so lengthy that it did not make sense to see exactly where the process began. In the case of Lord Buddha, he acquired two sorts of insights, the ability to recall with visual clarity his previous lives & the ability to do so in the case of others too. All the previous lives of Lord Buddha are recorded as "Jataka Stories".

As per Lord Buddha he was in his previous many births, not only in human bodies but also took birth as birds & animals. Hindu religion also talks about 8.4 Million different types of species in this universe & a soul goes from one type of body to the other as per the Karmic law.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita which explain about the rebirth:

"dehino-asmin yatha dehe
kaumaram yauvnam jara
tatha dehantar-praptir-
adhiras tatra na muhyati" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 13)

"Sri Krishna said: Just as boyhood, youth & old age are attributed to the soul & the embodied soul continuously passes through these cycles, similarly the embodied soul passes into another body at death. The wise man does not get deluded & bewildered with such a change."

"vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya
navani grhnati naro ’parani
tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany
anyani samyati navani dehi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 22)

"Sri Krishna said: As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones."

"jatasya hi dhruvo mrityur
dhruvam janma mrtasya cha
tasmad apariharye ’rthe
na tvam socitum arhasi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 27)

"Sri Krishna said: One who has taken his birth is sure to die, and after death one is sure to take birth again. Therefore, in the unavoidable discharge of your duty, you should not lament."

"sri-bhagavan uvacha
bahuni me vyatitani
janmani tava charjuna
tany aham veda sarvani
na tvam vettha parantapa" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Four verse 5)

"Sri Krishna said: Both you and I have passed through many, many births. I can remember all of them, but you cannot, O winner of the enemy!"

Sometimes it happens in our life that some unknown out of the crowd seems so known to you, though you have met that person for the first time. If we meet someone & form meaningful close relationship with that person, then the assumption is that we may have previously met & have associated with that person in previous births also. As a Karmic connection we meet that person again & maintain connections in this lifetime also. Same is the case with all the persons who are close to us in this life. It is not just like that we have suddenly become so close to those people. It is only that all these people were in our lives in our previous births also. We are together here because we had been together before in our previous lives.

In Hindu scriptures Karma is related to the origin of one's own body. Karmas of earlier birth become the basis of this birth & Karmas of this birth become the basis of your next birth & so on. At death, soul of a person takes the stock of all Karmas (having its reservoir in that person's mind) & Divinity or God as per the divine law takes a handful of those Karmas & a new body is made with the seeds of these Karmas. So if a person has done good Karmas he/she gets a good godly body in heavens & if he/she has done bad karmas in this life then that person's soul goes to lower wombs of birds & animals. So it is generally said that we should do good Karmas only.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita which explain about how a soul travels from one body to the other & where it goes as per the Karmic law:

"sariram yad avapnoti
yac chapy utkramatishvarah
grhitvaitani samyati
vayur gandhan ivasayat" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fifteen verse 8)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, As the wind carries away odours from their seat, even so the Jivatma (soul), the lord of the body, snatching these (the mind & the senses) from the body, which it casts off, migrates into the body, which it acquires.

"yada sattve pravrddhe tu
pralayam yati deha-bhrt
tadottama-vidam lokan
amalan pratipadyate" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 14)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, When one dies in the mode of goodness, he attains to the pure higher planets of the great sages."

"rajasi pralayam gatva
karma-sangisu jayate
tatha pralinas tamasi
mudha-yonisu jayate" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 15)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, When one dies in the mode of passion, he takes birth among those engaged in fruit producing activities (i.e. as a man or woman on earth); and when one dies in the mode of ignorance, he takes birth in the bird & animal kingdom."

As per the Hindu Philosophy, any "Karma" done by a person, remains with that person, unless he/she has enjoyed the consequential Fruit arisen out of doing that Karma. For a good act done by him, he shall bear good result & enjoy it. Similarly for a bad act done by him, he shall bear bad result & shall have to bear punishment for it. So, whatever, action/karma we perform with our body, mind or even speech, it should not do harm to others but should be of some use only to others. By doing good Karmas only we shall get good life in future births & shall finally meet the God.

Jai Shri Krishna

Below are Sanskrit Quotes from Bhagavad Gita with English & Hindi Translation.

नीचे भागवद गीता के कुछ प्रसिद्ध उद्धरण (Quotes) हैं जो पहले संस्कृत में हैं और उनका इंग्लिश और हिंदी में अनुवाद किया गया है :

१) यदा, यदा, हि, धर्मस्य, ग्लानिः, भवति, भारत,
अभ्युत्थानम्, अधर्मस्य, तदा, आत्मानम्, सृजामिहम्।।
 (भागवत गीता: अध्याय चार पद 7)

"Sri Krishna said: Whenever and wherever there is a decline in virtue/religious practice, O Arjuna, and a predominant rise of irreligion—at that time I descend Myself, i.e. I manifest Myself as an embodied being."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: जब जब भी और जहां जहां भी, हे अर्जुन, पुण्य / धर्म  की हानि होती है और अधर्म में वृद्धि होती है, तब तब मैं अवतार लेता हूँ "

२) परित्राणाय, साधूनाम्, विनाशाय, च, दुष्कृृताम्,
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय, सम्भवामि, युगे, युगे।।
(भागवत गीता: अध्याय चार पद 8)

"Sri Krishna said: To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: साधु लोगों का उद्धार करने के लिये ओर बुरे कर्म करने वाले लोगों का विनाश करने के लिये और धर्म की संस्थापना करने के लिए, मैं युग - युग में अवतरित होता हूं 

३) "कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन,
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।।
(भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 47)

"Sri Krishna said: You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: तुम्हें अपने निर्धारित कर्तव्य का पालन करने का अधिकार है, लेकिन तुम कर्मों के फल के हकदार नहीं हो। इसलिये तुम कर्मों के फल हेतु मत हो तथा तुम्हारी कर्म न करने में भी आसक्ति न हो "

४) न जायते, म्रियते, वा कदाचित् न अयम्, भूत्वा, भविता वा न, भूयः 
अजः नित्यः शाश्वतः अयम्, पुराणः   न, हन्यते, हन्यमाने, शरीरे।।
(भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 20)


"Sri Krishna said: The soul is never born nor dies at any time. Soul has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. Soul is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. Soul is not slain when the body is slain."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा ना पैदा होती है और न ही किसी भी समय मरती है। आत्मा न उत्पन्न होकर फिर होने वाली ही है, क्योंकि आत्मा अजन्मा, नित्य, शाश्वतः, सनातन और पुरातन है। शरीर के मारे जाने पर भी आत्मा नहीं मरती ।।"

५) वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णतिः, नरः अपराणि, 
तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णानि, अन्यानि  संयाति, नवानि, देही।। 
(भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 22) 


"Sri Krishna said: As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: एक इंसान जैसे पुराने वस्त्रों को त्यागकर नये वस्त्रों को ग्रहण करता है वैसे ही जीवात्मा पुराने जीर्ण शरीर को त्याग कर नये शरीर को प्राप्त होती है।।"

६) नैनं छिन्दन्ति, शस्त्राणि, नैनं दहति, पावकः,
न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः।।
(भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 23) 


"Sri Krishna said: The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind."

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा किसी भी शस्त्र से नहीं काटी जा सकती है, और न ही आत्मा को आग जला सकती है, इसको जल नहीं गला सकता है और वायु आत्मा को नहीं सूखा सकती है।।"

Jai Shri Krishna

गीता सार, हिंदी में - Geeta Saar in Hindi with English Translation

हाँ नीचे भागवत गीता के दर्शन का संक्षिप्त सार है. भागवत गीता का उपदेश भारत के हरियाणा राज्य में कुरुक्षेत्र के युद्ध के मैदान पर अपने शिष्य अर्जुन को, भगवान कृष्ण, भगवान स्वयं के द्वारा दिया गया.  इन शिक्षाओं को 5000 साल पहले दिया गया था लेकिन ये हमारे जीवन में आज भी उतनी ही प्रासंगिक हैं.

(Bhagwat Geeta is the greatest book of Hindu Philosophy. Here below is the brief essence of the Philosophy of Bhagwat Geeta. Teachings of Bhagwat Geeta were given by Lord Krishna, the God Himself to his disciple Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra in Haryana State of India. These teachings were given more than 5000 years ago but these are still relevant today in our lives. )
  • अतीत में जो कुछ भी हुआ, वह अच्छे के लिए हुआ, जो कुछ हो रहा हैअच्छा हो रहा है, जो भविष्य में होगा, अच्छा ही होगा. अतीत के लिए मत रोओ, अपने वर्तमान जीवन पर ध्यान केंद्रित करो , भविष्य के लिए चिंता मत करो 
  • (Whatever happened in the past, it happened for the good; Whatever is happening, is happening for the good; Whatever shall happen in the future, shall happen for the good only. Do not weep for the past, do not worry for the future, concentrate on your present life.)
  • जन्म के समय में आप क्या लाए थे जो अब खो दिया है? आप ने क्या पैदा किया था जो नष्ट हो गया है?  जब आप पैदा हुए थे, तब आप कुछ भी साथ नहीं लाए थे.  आपके पास जो कुछ भी है,  आप को इस धरती पर भगवान से ही प्राप्त हुआ है.  आप इस धरती पर जो भी दोगे, तुम भगवान को ही दोगे.  हर कोई खाली हाथ इस दुनिया में आया था और खाली हाथ ही उसी रास्ते पर चलना होगा. सब कुछ केवल भगवान के अंतर्गत आता है
  • (What did you bring at the time of birth, that you have lost? What did you produce,  which is destroyed? You didn't bring anything when you were born. Whatever you have, you have received it from the God only while on this earth. Whatever you will give, you will give it to the God. Everyone came in this world empty handed and shall go the same way. Everything belongs to God only.)
  • आज जो कुछ आप का है,  पहले किसी और का था और भविष्य में किसी और का हो जाएगा. परिवर्तन संसार का नियम है. 
  • (Whatever belongs to you today, belonged to someone else earlier and shall belong to some one else in future. Change is the law of the universe.)
  • आप एक अविनाशी आत्मा हैं और एक मृत्युमय शरीर नहीं है. शरीर पांच तत्वों से बना है - पृथ्वी, अग्नि, जल, वायु और आकाश।  एक दिन शरीर इन तत्वों में लीन हो जाएगा
  • (You are an indestructible Soul & not a body. Body is composed of five elements - Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Sky; one day body shall perish in these elements.)
  • आत्मा अजन्म है और कभी नहीं मरता है. आत्मा मरने के बाद भी हमेशा के लिए रहता है.  तो क्यों व्यर्थ की चिंता करते हो? आप किस बात से डर रहे हैं?  कौन तुम्हें मार सकता है
  • (Soul lives forever even after death as soul is never born & never dies. So Why do you worry unnecessarily? What are you afraid of? Who can kill you?)
  • केवल सर्वशक्तिमान ईश्वर के लिए अपने आप को समर्पित करो.  जो भगवान का सहारा लेगा, उसे हमेशा भय, चिंता और निराशा से मुक्ति मिलेगी. 
  • (Devote yourself to the Almighty God only. One who takes the support of God, always gains freedom from fear, worry and despair.)
Jai Shri Krishna

हिंदी संवाद - कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन (karmany evadhikaras te)

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
"कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन । 
  मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि" ।।
  (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)

"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने अर्जुन से कहा: आप को अपने निर्धारित कर्तव्य का पालन करने का अधिकार है, लेकिन आप कभी कर्म फल की इच्छा से कर्म मत करो (कर्म फल देने का अधिकार सिर्फ ईश्वर को है)। कर्म फल की अपेक्षा से आप कभी कर्म मत करें, न ही आप की कभी कर्म न करने में प्रवृर्ति हो (आप की हमेशा कर्म करने में प्रवृर्ति हो) ।।" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)

"karmany evadhikaras te
ma phalesu kadachana
ma karma-phala-hetur bhur
ma te sango ’stv akarmani" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty." (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)

Here below is detailed meaning of this verse:

1) karmany evadhikaras te: कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते: you have a right to work only
2) ma phalesu kadachana: मां फलेषु कदाचन: but have no right to the fruits thereof
3) ma karma-phala-hetur bhur: मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: let not the fruits be the motive of doing karmas
4) ma te sango ’stv akarmani: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि: let yourself not be attached to inaction.

Jai Shri Krishna
