[This is a guest post by source url Mr. M.Prasad.] I had the privilege of going through, and assimilating the knowledge from many many books in this regard. Sorry I am not a guru, and I don’t want to preach. After visiting this Web site, I just wanted to share my knowledge with you. Since a long time, I was interested in what happens to the bodies after death. The physical bodies are either cremated or buried. So the physical aspect may be given a goodbye. Hence the soul form only travels to the next part or faces the music, if you believe in the soul. Else no problem at all, ‘cause the life ended with the death. That’s all. For believers then, the soul form travels to another loka, i.e., Pitruloka temporarily. There the soul is put to trial. All his/her actions that have earned a point, both positive and negative are played before the soul. One cannot say ‘No’ because, there was a witness that resided in your heart and ready to testify. You cannot bluff. Then, depending on your record and points earned, you are given a choice to enter into the human form. The soul is given a choice. The soul will know the wombs available at that time, and what happens to this particular soul, while living as the child of these parents (future life!). It is the soul then that makes the decision which womb to enter. The soul may not fulfill all its desires in that particular birth. Because it has chosen to be born to that particular mother, the final plan in seed form is also carried by the individual soul. These are the Past life’s contacts, memories, desires etc. That’s how one gets a Dejavu feeling some times. Every soul wants to be born in a rich family, wants to have beautiful wives/husbands and everything the best in life… But alas! One cannot get it. ‘Cause the points in your balance are limited. You have to earn more points, to deserve more! Earning those points is possible only on earth. Hence come back to earth, do good things, get more points, go back… and return. That is the cycle. Why don’t we remember our past lives? The physical brain that is the storehouse of all the memories is already destroyed. And the soul form carries only that which is necessary for the present life. Still traces may remain and that is Dejavu! If you remember your past life, you cannot live fully in the present life. There would be conflict of interests. It may lead to chaos!! Only the Almighty is capable of remembering all his and our past lives. That’s his job. Else he cannot justify the options given to the soul to be born as such and such. Hence if you are a believer in God, and believer in rebirths, then please do good things only, as to amass more points on earth, so that you can live a life of your choice later. Got it? It is so simple.
