Do we get a human birth each time we die?

As per Vedic sciences, Hindu philosophy believes in rebirth unless your Sanchit and Prarabdha Karmas are totally exhausted. It also believes in liberation in which once your past karmas debt is over, you do not take a rebirth. On the other hand, Garuda Purana says that you can take rebirth in animal species, which means you can be born like a donkey or a dog. Vedic science on the other hand says that once you get a human body, you will either be liberated or only get another human body. The message of Garuda Purana can be read and interpreted in a different perspective. In mythology humans are linked to animal tendencies. For example, bull is linked to sexual and non–sexual desires, peacock to vanity etc. Probably, people who wrote Garuda Purana meant that if you do not live according to the Shastras, you will end up in getting another human body but with animal tendencies and behavior.

I want to live after my death

In my workshops, whenever I ask delegates as to how long they want to live, the answers I usually get from most of them is 60, 70 or 80 years. While answering they forget that they are only talking about the death of the physical body but what about the mental, social, intellectual and spiritual bodies. It is well known that the soul never dies and so do your Sanskars and good work done. The aim of life should be that one should live even after the death of his or her physical body. It is your good Karmas, which keep your memories alive even after your physical death. It is equally true that your bad Karmas too can make people remember you after death but that is not the purpose of life. We would like to be remembered as Rama and not like Ravana after death. In Vedic language your present is decided by your past and your future is decided by your present. To improve your future you need to work positively in your present. When you start working positively in your present moment, you will start neutralizing your bad karmas. It is like washing a dirty shirt which will not become stain free in one washing. Only with repeated washings can it become stain free. Similarly washing away your bad karmas with good karmas will take time. It is possible that even when one starts doing good Karmas, one may still suffer as the sum total of past karmas may not have been neutralized by that time. For example, if a dacoit surrenders and wants to live a civilian life he may be pardoned to some extent but may still be jailed for some duration of time. In other word he may be pardoned from death sentence and given life sentence. As per Bhagavad Gita, whatever your thoughts are at the time of death will decide the atmosphere you will get in your rebirth. It also says that whatever will be your thoughts throughout your life will be your thoughts at the time of your death. So do not expect that you can acquire positive thoughts at the time of death if you have been thinking negative throughout your life The gist is to start doing good actions in the present.

Did all Gods suffer before death?

Most Gods and spiritual gurus had suffered in their last days. Lord Krishna had a nonhealing wound, Jesus Christ was crucified, Bhagwan Rajneesh had an infectious disease, Swami Chinmayanand had low functioning heart, Maharshi Mahesh Yogi had heart and pancreatic disease, Satya Sai Baba was put on a ventilator etc. When they were God–like personalities, why did they suffer in their last days? The answer to this comes from Vedic knowledge within the concept of rebirth. Vedanta says that the very fact that we are born means that in the last birth we did not attain moksha or liberation. In other words, this means that there were some sufferings yet to be faced. You are born to face those sufferings. When you face the last suffering, there are high chances that that suffering may be your last suffering before liberation. Most Gods or saints who died in a phase of suffering may mean that they did not attain liberation. A person who dies suddenly or unnaturally would mean that he would have to take rebirth to face more sufferings. According to me, terminal sufferings are good from spiritual point of view.
