8 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ON SOUL (ATHMA) ENTERING THE BODIES!
Pragati Achar asked like this:
“Hello Rajan Sir, hope you’re keeping well. I have a question for you regarding the entry of atma into a garbha.
How does a soul enter in new body? Is there any way to know?
Does soul enter from same Nav randhra marg (which it left from)?
In which month of pregnancy a soul enters into a new body (foetus)?
Is there any possibility in choosing a wrong body by Soul? If yes then what happens?
What are the basic things (like Genetics of both parents) required for soul entering in to a new body?
What are things come from last birth in to new life? (like Education, Life duration).
Is there any text in Hinduism on this?
As I came to know that Punsavana (seeking birth of a male child) or Strisavana(seeking birth of a female child) sanskar done in the third month after the conception. Does this mean that soul enters after the third month of pregnancy?”
(1) To know how the soul leaves and enters in to the bodies, read THIS POST of our site posted long back:
(2) Does soul enter from same Nav randhra marg (which it left from)?
Though there are concepts that the soul enters into the nine holes of father’s body, they do not find any logic in it. But, it is true and undisputed for thousands of years that the soul leaves through anyone of the nine holes of body. For example, a soul entering into father’s anus or eyes do not find any logic. So, more logical reply as said by Chandogya Upanishad is that the soul enters through the grains as mentioned in my above post. There are ‘many intermediate period Upanishads’ that have not been included in vedic texts that confuse the people with many versions. However, Chandogya Upanishad is the one included in vedic scripturs. So, we take it as authoritative. So, entry through grains and again through food is logical. So, I go with it.
(3) In which month of pregnancy a soul enters into a new body (foetus)?
The soul enters into the body of the man even before he has physical interaction with woman. Then, it gets added to his semen. Then, a suitable sperm cell is chosen to enter into the body of woman. The sperm cell getting entered into the body of woman is decided based on his sanskars (collection of his thoughts and acts in his previous bodies).
Every sperm cell is a living cell. So, the soul should be there inside the sperm cell to make it a living cell. So, just when the sperm succeeds in mixing with the egg of woman, the soul should be there.
So, the logical reply should be that the soul enters into the uterus of woman even when the foetus is formed, ie., on the very first day of conception.
(4) Is there any possibility in choosing a wrong body by Soul? If yes then what happens?
No. Krishna’s departments can not go wrong. Only the human employees commit such mistakes. Karma network ensures these stages: (i) the soul enters into the particular man’s body who has suitable karma to be faced to fulfil the recordings in the entering soul. (ii) then, the karma network ensures that the man marries a particular woman who has similar karma to be faced like that man. (iii) Then, the particular soul packed sperm cell is made to enter into the body of that particular woman only, ie, who also has similar karma to be faced. (iv) Thus, the karma network ensures that both that particular man and woman face a certain reactions through that child.
This is the secret behind the choice of man and woman by the soul. The karma network ensures that the soul reaches its right destination.
(5) What are the basic things (like Genetics of both parents) required for soul entering in to a new body?
As said in the above reply, the soul enters the uterus during the intercourse and conception itself. So, that man and woman should not have the karma of “NO CHILDREN” in that birth. This is the only eligibility and the body is decided as per the karma of the parents concerned. After the entry of the soul, suitable alterations in the genes of that man happens.
(6) What are things come from last birth in to new life? (like Education, Life duration)?
Every single thought and actions are recorded and this makes the sanskar. So, the body of a man is chosen that matches with the karma of the entering soul.
For example, if a person is destined to lead a rowdy life, after his death, his soul is allowed to enter into the body of a man who has the destiny (karma) that he should have a rowdy son. Then, his sperm cell is allowed to enter into the body of a woman who has the destiny (karma) that she should have a rowdy son.
Thus, karma matching is done beautifully by the karma network.
(7) Is there any text in Hinduism on this?
Chandokya Upanishad and many other bonafide vedic Upanishads speak on these things. Even Srimad Bhagavatham and Garuda Purana give some clues here and there. But, there are many unrecognized Upanishads and puranas that speak different versions that can be neglected.
(8) As I came to know that Punsavana (seeking birth of a male child) or Strisavana(seeking birth of a female child) sanskar done in the third month after the conception. Does this mean that soul enters after the third month of pregnancy?
You may come to know hundreds of concepts because India has many confusing explanations for a single concept. All need not be true. You can not change the gender or karma of the child after the conception. If you need a good child, you should clear your negative karma about the child even before mating.
Can we violate our karma? READ HERE!
Some bogus persons speak of doing these changes after the conception and even in 8th month. See, if a doctor takes a child out even in the seventh month, it will have full life with the added karma.
So, changing anything after the conception is impossible. However, if you sincerely pray to the creator and the controller of karma network, ie, Krishna, you may get some relaxations ONLY IF KRISHNA DECIDES TO INTERFERE IN YOUR AND SPOUSE’S KARMA. This is rare and only if you detach completely from material attachments and develop a prema with Krishna. Even after that, it depends on the causeless mercy of Krishna.
Hope these replies help.
