Life is all about the present. It is vain to lament the past or fear to look for the future and thereafter. If you live your today honestly and truly you will be happy.

This feeling comes because we human beings have devised our way of life to live in closely knitted society. Our close association with parents, relatives, friends and members of society, creates a sense of binding. All our feeling of such binding, tend us to think a re-living in one or other forms of another life. Whereas in reality, it is not so. When we are not having the ability to sense our past or future association with present set up, what is the use of even having life after death. But we do have life after death in different sense, that is, ucleus of body transforms from one form to another. Any matter in the universe is not destroyed but transformed from one form to another. Probably, the more realised in the past were referring the rebirth in this sense, the less realised in later part, mistaken this rebirth what we made to believe now!

Very good Qs. Your Qs itself has an Ans....!!
Just I put some examples here.Muslims believe that the present life is a trial in preparation for the next realm of existence. When a Muslim dies, he or she is washed and wrapped in a clean, white cloth (usually by a family member) and buried after a special prayer, preferably the same day. Muslims consider this a final service that they can do for their relatives and an opportunity to remember that their own existence here on earth is brief.

The question of whether there is life after death does not fall under the jurisdiction of science, as science is concerned only with classification and analysis of sense data. Moreover, man has been busy with scientific inquiries and research, in the modern sense of the term, only for the last few centuries, while he has been familiar with the concept of life after death since time immemorial.
All the Prophets of God called their people to worship God and to believe in life after death. They laid ...more

No Sir i dont agree with you.Certainly there is life after death.Gita and other holy books justify that it is the soul that dwells in human body and when a person dies the soul gets released from that body and after passing through various tests he again takes re-birth in the shape of another human being. ie according to his karmas.Life in my view is a greatest gift of God and we should thank Him and always do good which shall make Him happy.

Hi, We are not aware what kind of life we will have after Death. Suppose it is very bad,,full of miseries and ugly we will have more fear to face death and our life will be miserable all the time thinking about the miseries we would face after death, So it is better we dont have life after death and even if have ,we better not be aware of it.This would help us to live a better.peaceful life....!!!

First of all a rigorous practice of yoga exercise is highly essential to realise the indepth meaning of Life & Death, a common man born in this earth cannot understand unless he is destined.
Some valuable book I have read but dont remember A child can remember the past life up to 6 or 8 years.
It is huge subject, Common man cannot have debate in this forum on life & death. BUT IT VERY GOOD TO CREATE MORE AWARENESS TO PENETRATE & RESEARCH THE MIND ON THIS ISSUE.
