Many people do not believe in reincarnation. And those who do, can’t prove it.
Some people are totally against it. While some others even speak of remembering their own past births.
Who and how and why to believe?
Reincarnation comes into the picture from a karmic point of view, i.e. the law of karma, i.e action begets reaction.
Think of a justice system, that does not punish one for a crime. Rather, all their good actions and bad actions are separately totalled, and then netted off. If good is greater than bad, then no matter how barbaric the bad (think murders and rapes), the person goes to a ‘heaven’. And that’s that. Case closed. Story over. No rebirth.
Does that sound like a logical justice system? Or would it make more sense for the perpetrator to suffer or enjoy the consequences of each of his/her actions – no matter whether this birth or the next?
Food for thought.
