Role of the Paramatma at the Time of Death


The Paramatma has a crucial role to play at the time of death. He makes arrangements for the living entity to be transferred to his next body according to his karma. While he is in a gross body, his subtle body is already preparing itself for the next gross body. The Paramatma arranges for the actual transfer of the liv­ing entity along with his subtle body from one gross body to an­other by His divine vision - karmana daiva netrena. Lord Krishna confirms this in the Bhagavad-gita (15.8) "The living entity in the material world carries his different conceptions of life from one body to another as the air carries aromas." At the time of death, the living entity covered by the subtle body, leaves behind the gross body and goes to the next womb, under the guidance of the Paramatma. Although the living entity has no knowledge of what is happening to him. the Paramatma supervises the transmi­gration process of the living entity and, after he attains a new body, reminds him of what to do and how to do it.
