Advantages of believing in past lives, future lives and temporary stay in Heaven and Hell


20. Advantages of believing in past lives, future lives and temporary stay in Heaven and Hell


We Hindus strongly believe in past lives and after life. This belief helps us to give us logical reason of many questions


Why a new born innocent child suffers even though s/he has not done any negative karma, as s/he is not capable to think and act decisively. The answer is, though they have not done anything wrong in this life, they are suffering due to ripening of fruits of demerits of past lives.


Why are innocent people are drowned or buried or killed in natural disasters like flood, earthquake, tsunami, etc.


Why new born child shows a particular characteristics and has a particular nature, leaning towards any form of art or strong faith in God since childhood, why some people progress faster than others, etc.


Belief in past lives and future births helps us understand the behaviour by taking into account past lives.


Even the logical answer based on Science is acceptable. Malnutrition, birth defects, natural calamities all can be explained based on verified proofs. Even though the answer does not contain the word ‘God’, it is perfectly acceptable. We have an entire school dedicated to learning Logic. It is called as Nyaya.
