Book Of Karma – Rebirths | Spiritual Quest | EP 11 | Spirituality 101 | KrsnaKnows


We are taking up a very interesting subject
called “Rebirths.” The Book of Karma is a very lengthy book. We are going to do it in short bursts of a
couple of minutes so that you understand the theory of karma and can use it in your life. The religion says we have rebirths. That means you born again and again. Some religions will say that there are no
rebirths that there is only one birth. They are right from their perspective, we
are right from our perspective. Are there multiple rebirths? Or is only one birth necessary? This is a subject which we will tackle in
today’s video. Every time when we go and buy something we
have to pay money for it. If you do something for someone he has to
give it back to you in the same coin. Which means that every transaction has to
be completed. There are lots of times when the transactions
do not get completed. In one lifetime these transactions are halfway
through, or sometimes it only lopsided, only one person gets the benefit the other one
doesn’t. Can this transaction be completed? It’s a transaction which involves death, somebody
gets killed. Do you think that transaction got completed
in this life? No, because the person is dead. So what happens to these kind of transactions? These kind of transactions have to be completed
over lifetimes. Which means rebirths. Now you have heard in various scriptures that
this person was born to this person, that means he has taken birth through some womb. And he was born earlier as well. Whenever such kind of a situation comes up,
doesn’t it tell you that there are rebirths? So these rebirths are done for what is called
as repayments of debts. Any debt that you incur in this lifetime,
you have to pay for it. Can there be any law in this world where you
don’t have to pay for it? There is nothing like that. When a person says that “I owe you a certain
amount of money,” it is important that he repays it back. Right? In the same way, there are certain people
in this world who will promise another person that “I will give you this property.” Let us say he doesn’t give and he dies. What happens to that? The promises are half kept, they are not even
kept at all. So in such a case don’t you think that that
person owes it to him? Let us say in another case, there is an individual
who promises his daughter in marriage to someone. But the girl has found someone else, she gets
married to that person. What happens to the father’s promise? Do you think this promise has to be kept? If you owe money to someone and you promise
that person that “I will pay you by this date,” and that person dies. You have the money ready with you and yet
the person whom you owe the money dies. You owe it exactly to that person and not
to someone else. Don’t you have to pay back? Do you think it is possible in this lifetime? Not at all because this person is already
dead. You have to pay him in some other lifetime. Another case in point would be knowledge. Have you seen that there are child prodigies? They know mathematics, they know drawing,
they know computers, by the time they are 4 and 5 the have already excelled in their
art. By the time they are 9 and 10, they have already
graduates. Now you may say, “how did this happen?” Did the brain cells fire so fast that they
became graduates by the time they are 9 and 10? This is something which is an enigma. This enigma can be explained by a rebirth. Knowledge which you have acquired in your
previous life comes back to you again. It is a database which remains with you and
this database starts off where you ended last time. So if you have left the book halfway at page
34, from the next life onwards you will start from page 35 onwards. So I hope you got it. Rebirths are a necessity. The question of Heaven and Hell will also
come, but that we are going to tackle in some other video
Right now let us talk only about rebirths. The debt that you have incurred or the debt
that somebody has incurred has to be completed. If these debts are not paid off, without that
person acknowledging it in this life or the next one, it will go on as carried forward. You know very well nothing can be carried
forward, it has to be paid back. And everything has to be paid back in the
same coin. If you owe somebody a chicken, you have to
give the chicken to that person. Do you think by giving him some fruits it
is going to sort out that issue? Not at all, that person will demand a chicken. Isn’t it true? Now rebirths are a necessity. So rebirth is the beginning chapter of something
which we call as karma. The next time that we have a video coming up we will be tackling this question of “What is Karma?” If you have understood this video on rebirths,
please write in the section the comments below or you can write to us directly and let us
know. If you have any more questions on this subject,
please write them to us. I will try to answer them as much I can. Thank you.
