I would like to know the relevance of rebirth, past life actions and karma on one's next life. Can you please help me.

Dear Anupama,
Rebirth is a matter of belief in Hindu Religions which comes from the immortality of the Soul or Atman. It is believed as per the philosophy of Gita that soul is immortal and only changes body when it gets old. So it takes rebirth in a new body according to your accumulated karma. So you present life is the result of your past karma and your future life depends on what you do now. We can change our future by doing good karma and avoiding bad karma.
With best wishes

Life is a mystery. One who tries to understand life purely on logic and reason fails as there is an Omnipresent Spirit that connects all. I have written more than 400 articles and papers on various forums dealing with life. The purpose of life is to know the world and its mysery. We must know the mind of God and that is the only way to become one with God and achieve salvation, liberation or Nirvana. I have authored a book titled "Practising Spiritual Intelligence for Innovation, Leadership and Happiness" which is one of the most popular books in India in several categories. You can read my articles, stories, commentaries and poems on www.scienceofsoul.com


I have over 8 years of experince in writing and helping the seeker to know the self and the world. I have around 25 years of experince in solving real life problems.
