Causality, Origins, & Reincarnation #81
The subject of reincarnation reveals its depth and importance in this rendering of cause and effect that goes far back into the origination of all beings and principles. Traditionally there are teachings about the material and the efficient causes of manifestation. This chart shows the Escalons of cause and effect running deep into the subtle levels of consciousness, with their correlatives in manifested and unmanifested nature as well. Knowing that all exterior things connect to their respective causes, and how they do so at gradated levels, gives the spiritually ascending soul all the knowledge and resolve necessary to meditate within and take the final involutionary journey to the Source.

Dasabhumikas — The Ten Pure Lands #102
The subject of rebirth and reincarnation is usually presented and examined from the standpoint of souls who are attempting to transcend suffering and desire for rebirth entirely. But what happens to souls who reach the end of their need to reincarnate, and who still want to return to relative planes of existence to help others attain such unprecedented Freedom? Whether these planes of existence are called lokas, akashas, bhumikas, or kingdoms of heaven within, these elite hosts of illumined souls may choose to continue to incarnate for the highest good of all living beings.

Lokas, Nadis, and Transmigration of Souls #20
Lokas are vast inner realms, described as kingdoms of heaven within, akashas, and bardos, etc., by illumined beings who sport a well developed internal life. Nadis are the abundance of channels running through all lokas, along which course departing and arriving souls in and out of a complicated confluence of concourses, borne here and there by the flow of dynamic spiritual energy called Kundalini, or Shakti. If the outer physical world is replete with an endless series of paths, roads, highways and biways, how much more vast and spralling are the inner worlds, which are truly like “Chambers in our Father’s Mansion.” The intrepid spiritual wayfarer meditates in order to come to know these blissful worlds, all nestled in the Great Mind on God.

Phases of the Soul in Relativity #22
As the Great Soul, Swami Vivekananda, has reminded us in these modern times, all beings are not created equal. This is true not just of their lives; their mental makeup also varies, often in the extreme. And though the philosophy of Nonduality tells us that change is nonactual, that transformation is a myth, these changes that the soul (mind) passes through in relativity serve a purpose of not only gradating the millions of beings embodied in form, but also of supplying a way of ascension up and out of form when the soul is through with it. Finally, this inward ascension introduces us to advanced souls who enter our lives, and lifetimes, often unasked, but always for the betterment of all involved.

Rebirth and the Refinement of Consciousness #45
Teachings from the Bhagavad Gita transmitted by Sri Krishna are as valid and beneficial today as they were in ancient India. To become aware of one’s past lifetimes is to step halfway inward towards Enlightenment itself. Further, it is helpful for the aspirant after realization to come to know the stages of the rebirth process in terms of how the soul refines itself using spiritual practice lifetime after lifetime until perfection returns.

Samskaras in the Human Mind #128
Subtle deposits springing from all the thoughts and actions of our lifetime, as well as from lifetimes lived previ ously in other bodies, are called samskaras in Sanskrit. Positive, negative, and mixed, these collections of impres sions are responsible for how beings think or do not think, what beings are attracted to and what they are averse to, and in what modes they act — by which they reap, enjoy, and suffer their karmas from such actions. Bringing these composites of thought and action to the surface via spiritual practices, the aspirant after freedom can render them inef fective to influence mind, energy (prana), senses, and body ever again.

Teachings on the Bardo States #69
An entire course on the richest teachings of reincarnation available in this day and time, the relating of esoteric wisdom around the bardos in Tibetan Buddhism leads the soul to knowledge of the dynamics of birth and death concerning the transmigrating soul. The veiled occurrences of what this conglomerate of conditioned consciousness, or “subtle body,” experiences in between the death of the former body and the appearance of the new body also becomes revealed, leaving it open for the rarified experience of a conscious death and a fully dharmic life, or lives, thereafter.

The Chain of Rebirth With Its Twelve Nidanas (Links) in Buddhis #117
The esoteric teaching of the Twelve Nidanas is one of Buddhism’s three main dharmic pillars. To come to know the movement and location of the embodied soul in relativity — at least until it remembers its static, all-pervasive nature — is a great aid to the process of getting free of transmigration on the wheel of birth and death. Most sensitive beings, rare as they may be in this world, who come to know of the possibility of Freedom, will take three life times to accomplish this penultimate goal of spiritual life. A major part of the process will consist of snapping the links that bind the soul to pleasures, worlds, relatives and families, wealth, and all the karmas that have accumulated due to habitual relations with all of them. For the adamantine seeker, then, this chart and its teachings will act as an inner road map to the radiant lands of pure, conscious Awareness.

The Five Akashas of Vedanta Philosophy #59
With the major emphasis being on outer space in this scientific day and time, the realms of inner space have all been forgotten and abandoned. Indian seers have long known that these “....many chambers of my Father’s Mansion” are the places of origin for all transmigrating souls who take a form to earth, as well as the abiding homes of pece and bliss for the gods and higher beings. Called akashas in Sanskrit, also lokas, they can be envisioned as being interconnected and dependent upon one another, like five Russian dolls that each reside in one another, partaking of the bliss of “Oneness in diversity.”

The Five Sheaths of the Adhara System #64
Classic to the Vedanta Darshana, and utilized by so many religions and philosophical systems in one way or another, India’s ancient presentation of the five sheaths of human awareness over the eternal Atman has far-reaching ramifications for the embodied soul’s understanding of its innate spirituality. Coming to know of the overlays of form over formless Reality is, for many in this day and time, a completely healing insight, affecting as it does both the intrinsic perfection of one’s true nature, and the ability to slough off all such false superimpositions and be free. At the same time such understanding helps to render life in the realm of form beneficial, helping to deify body, energy (prana), mind, intelligence, and the ego — the five sheathes, or koshas, clear and pure. Gaining freedom from them and living in the Atman then becomes a matter of natural course.

The Makeup of a Samskara & Samskaraskandha #129
As a closer look into the consistency of a samskara, and as a partner dharma chart with #128, this teaching takes apart the contents of a mental impression to reveal what it is made of and what gives it its power over the human being. Further, a skandha, or conglomeration of samskaras, is examined as well, shedding light upon what prompts the embodied soul to take bodies, specific genders, families, lifestyles, careers, and why those souls with heavy karma tend towards bondage in samsara and never seek knowledge, peace, bliss, and freedom.

The Mind’s Release from Rebirth #48
Drawn from the wealth of stories from the famous scripture, Yoga Vasistha, comes a teaching chart that outlines the errant soul’s continual fall into cycles of rebirth in ignorance. Besides providing an apt explanation for the presence of so many suffering souls in this world, the teaching also reveals that auspicious moment in a series of lifetimes when the aspiring being, at odds with life and world-weary, affects its wise move back to its Source, featuring all the friends and helpers that encourage it onwards.
