Reincarnation is a fact

Q. Hare Krishna…I want to know, is reincarnation really true? And if yes is there any scientifically proven cases for this? Can u forward some of the articles on this topic and some proved cases.


A. Reincarnation is a logically acceptable fact. Just as our body is changing at every moment even though the individual remains the same, so the body when it is totally useless is given up and a new body is awarded to the person after death. It is as simple as removing an old set of clothes and putting on a new one.

Dr. Ian Stevenson, a psychiatrist at the University of Virginia, in his book Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation (1966), has documented and verified past-life memories in young children. Many other scientists in India and abroad have recorded cases of past-life memories. The Vedic scriptures, especially the Srimad-Bhagavatam, also mention several cases of reincarnation.

If you wish to know more about this subject, I suggest you to read Coming Backā€”The Science of Reincarnation, a book published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust. You can purchase this book from any ISKCON temple.
