From whom to hear about Reincarnation?
Most of the reincarnation literature available in the market today is highly speculative, superficial and inconclusive. Although such books make for interesting reading and have stimulated the ever widening public interest and belief in reincarnation, none of these popular works explain the fundamental facts about reincarnation, such as the simple process by which the soul eternally transmigrates from one material body to another. Authors present their own self-styled theories about how and in which particular cases reincarnation occurs, as if only some special or gifted living beings reincarnate and others do not. This type of presentation does not deal with the science of reincarnation but leaves the reader with scores of unanswered questions.
So many books now clutter our shelves and minds. Many Westerners, in order to gain a deeper understanding about reincarnation, are turning to the original sources of knowledge about past and future lives. Among all available literatures, the Sanskrit Vedas of India are the oldest on earth and present the most comprehensive and logical explanations of the science of remcamation, teachings that have maintained their viability ar*d universal appeal for more than five thousand years. The most fundamental information about reincarnation appears in the Bhagavad-gita, the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upanishads. Since time immemorial it has been appreciated by many world-renowned men of wisdom for its authoritative knowledge. Albert Einstein, the outstanding scientist of his times, said, "When I read the Bhagavad-gita. 1 ask myself how God created the universe. Everything else appears to be superfluous." The Bhagavad-gita is targeted at people of this day and age who have difficulty grasping the imports of the complex and often esoteric Vedic hymns. It has been tried and tested by millions of spiritual practitioners as Lord Krishna Himself informs us: 'bahavo jnana tapasa puta mad bhavam agatali' 'many persons in the past became purified by knowledge of Me, and thus they all attained transcendental love for Me' (Bhagavad-gita 4.10)
