Once we gain knowledge of the mind, we would be better equipped to understand the existence of past and future lives, the very basis of reincarnation. The scientific community believes that the mind ceases to exist along with the body, after death. However, many spiritual congregations and religions do not accept this scientific thought process. Buddhism believes in reincarnation, and the fact that the mind is a guest, in a body which is a guesthouse. When the guest house/body becomes unlivable, the mind vacates it and goes in search of a new body, just like someone who vacates a guesthouse in search of a better dwelling.

Empirical proof of reincarnation is discussed below in the article.

Theories of reincarnation

One way to understand reincarnation and our past and future lives is to compare it with the various stages of sleeping, dreaming and wakefulness, as it has close resemblance to the stages of death, intermediate status and rebirth.

As we go to sleep, we continue to pass through various levels of sleep till we come to a state of sleep that presents a very clear state of the mind.  Here in the clear light of sleep, we experience peaceful and deep slumber, which is akin to being like a dead individual to others. As our deep sleep begins to end, we go through various stages of dream to come back to a wakeful state. In this awakened state, we experience complete mental and memory control, and our dream world is mostly an oblivion, which we cannot recollect even when try real hard.

Similarly, when we die we go into a very clear state of sleep, which is similar to the subtle mindset that one experience while in a state of deep slumber. Also, the clear light that follows death is then consumed by the intermediate stage, wherein the mind searches for a new body to dwell in. This is similar to the dreamlike stage that we experience just prior to getting up from sleep. A few days later, reincarnation happens and the mind is born into a new body. Just like when we awake from sleep, the dream vanishes and we get to experience this awakened new state, in a reincarnated form.

The vital difference between the stages of death, intermediate state and reincarnation and the stages of sleep, dream and wakefulness is the fact that when we awake from sleep, the connection between the body and the mind is still intact, whereas after the clear light of death has ceased, a new connection between the mind and a new body is established.

Proof of Reincarnation in Bible

Though this is matter of faith, here are some references to reincarnation in the Bible :

Malachi 1:2-3 and Romans 9:11-13  state that God loved Jacob, but hated Esau even before they were born.

Job 19:25 –  I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. 26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; 27 I myself will see him with my own eyes-I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!

Ecclesiastes 1:4-9  Old Testament verse states:

“Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again…What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”

Proof of Reincarnation

Most of us are aware of the fact that different people have different temperaments and tendencies. Some have a flair for creativity, while others are mathematical geniuses. Some obey the rule of law, while others are prone to violent behavior. Such behavior and intelligence is usually bestowed on the environmental factors, the upbringing and the genetic causes. However, it is also important to note that such factors do not contribute towards a 100 percent of an individual’s general makeup.

Children from the same parents will have access to similar upbringing and environmental factors. They may have identical genetic material, in the case of twins. However, empirical evidence has shown that such children, including twins do have differences in temperament, behavior, social skills and intelligence.

The theory states that mental tendencies result due to the habit of the mind. Habits are usually created by repetitive actions over a period of many years. Children are born with mental tendencies to elicit a certain trait or behavior. This indicates that they may have practiced or been habituated to such acts and traits, long before the current life, i.e. in the previous life. Children, who exude positive behavior and excel in life, may have indulged in positive activities in their previous life which then became a mental habit. Similarly, those who elicit violent, abnormal behavior may have been a part of such activities in their previous lives, which became entrenched as a habit of the mind.

There have been many stories of reincarnation which have come into light, by using hypnosis and allowing them to regress into their past lives. Such stories are available in various books. One can definitely access such books to gain a better understanding of reincarnation.

One of the best known set of data that provides scientific and empirical reincarnation proof, is the work of Dr. Ian Stevenson. He does not depend on hypnosis to assist an individual remember data about a previous life. All his data is dependent on spontaneous memories of people about their past lives.

The statements of individuals who have remember incidents about their past lives spontaneously and without the use of hypnosis, are collected and documented by him. The statements are then verified. The previous live of a person under the verification process is researched and the incidents, including birth or wound marks, etc, are investigated. Most of his work is available in the book titled ‘Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation’.

The credentials of Dr. Stevenson are impeccable. He is a medical doctor a former head of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia. Currently he is Director of the Division of Personality Studies at the University of Virginia.
