What is Rebirth

The explanation of mechanism of Rebirth is the final teaching for Sravakas. Post this teaching; serious voyagers would advance towards becoming “Pratyekbuddha” and graduate from being mere Sravakas. As per Miteiya, rebirth is not dependent upon good or bad acts but it depends upon the thoughts and instincts of a person during the time of his or her biological death. The latent desires, guilts and suppressed feelings during “Purgatory” define the fate of the soul.

Miteiya explains the mechanism of conversion of Basic Instincts into Wisdom, through the analogy of “King Yayati” and “Krishna”. Miteiya spends a substantial portion of his teachings in explaining the mechanism of rebirth. Through the analogy of Egyptian mythology, Miteiya speaks about Anubis, a demigod with dog head. During the decoding of Mahabharata, Miteiya explains the importance of a dog following Yudhisthir till the very end. The dog is none but symbol of “Basic Instincts”.

To explain rebirth, Miteiya talks about the importance of Krishna’s presence alongside a dying Bhism. Please be reminded that Krishna is symbol of wisdom whereas Bhism is symbol of Soul. The presence of wisdom while undergoing biological death plays the most important role in re-births. A person should essentially convert his or her “Basic Instincts” into “Wisdom” during the lifetime in order to avoid rebirth.

From Persian perspective, Miteiya explains the concept of Fravashi and Urvan to strengthen the idea of rebirth. He also quotes 2 cups of Silver and 2 cups of Gold in the afterlife as explained in Quran by Prophet Muhammad. All these views strengthen the concept of “Elemental Soul” and “Gross Soul” in scientific manner.

With the cognizance of “Re-birth Concept”, a voyager would make serious and permanent efforts to liberate oneself from the cycle of “Birth and Death”. Miteiya says that the cycle itself is “Dukkha” and the liberation from the same is permanent cure.

Miteiya quotes about the “Foremost Group” which will be neither sent to Heaven (Jannat) or Hell (Dojak) but will be rewarded with the companionship of Allah. Similarly in Sanatan Dharma, the real voyagers would not go to Heaven (Swarg) or Hell (Narak) but would be awarded with the entry to Vaikunthdham. Vaikunthdham is the abode of Supreme God Krishna.
