Do we have previous births?

In my personal experience, I had memories of my previous births both in my conscious stage and in my dream stage.
Once when I visited Tanjore Prahadeeswarar Temple of Tamil Nadu, I suddenly got a memory of hundreds of years ago. It came as a flash. I saw a king and the people of the past walk across the temple.

This memory came when I was young, when I was doing my graduation at Vivekananda College, Chennai. I shared this experience with my college friend and urged him to come with me next day to the same temple. But next day I didn’t get that experience.

Once when I met my neighbor of my house to which I have recently shifted, I asked him, ‘Why have you grown a beard?’ He was startled at first, and then managed to reply, ‘Just for fun’. Later when I analyzed this incident, I realized that I was meeting this person for the first time. In his previous birth only he didn’t have a beard!

I have had many memories of my previous births in my dreams. In fact I believe, dreams are a process to digest the shocks, pains, fears of our previous births.
I was a cockroach caught by a lizard in one of my dreams. I was a young sparrow learning to fly. I was a crow landing on a beautiful temple, when the priest drove me away!

Once when I was meditating near the altar of Aurobindo in the Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, I realized that I was in fact Aurobindo himself, a great yogi, a past freedom fighter of India.

Later many memories came to me in my dreams from my previous birth as Aurobindo. I was once talking to Bala Gangadara Tilak, a great freedom fighter of India, who lived one hundred years ago. I was talking to Rabindranath Tagore who won Nobel Prize. I was running away from Calcutta to Pondicherry to escape from getting caught by the British Police. I was preparing a bomb. Many such incidents from the life of Aurobindo came to me in my dreams.

I am continuing to do the works of Aurobindo in this birth. I am writing and publishing books and CDs of my spiritual experience, Patanjali Yoga, Thirumanthiram etc.
I have identified many a person’s previous births. Rabindranath Tagore is now A.Krishnamoorthy, Head of the Philosophy Department, AM.Jain College, Chennai, who did a doctorate on Tagore’s Educational theory, and who was called ‘Rabi’, though his name was Krishnamoorthy, and no part of his name had Rabi.

Bala Gangadara Tilak, a great freedom fighter of India, is now Jayakanthan, a well known writer of Tamil Nadu.
Ramana Maharishi is now Charles Rayappan, a healer working in London.

Mira Alfasa also known as Aurobindo Mother is now my wife.

This list is endless. If you come to meet me, I may be able to identify your previous birth too!

Thank you asanga, for your feedback. I understand your feelings after reading my blog. But, I never feel proud about my statement. I really wanted contacts from my earlier birth to get in touch with me now. You also could be one among them. Because Aurobindo had critics too!

You confuse reincarnation with memory leaks

You simply maybe remember anecdotes of lives of someone else, that's all, or just imagine them based on things you read in the past.

It is not the personal that is reincarnated, this is a common error many have because they usually look for some metaphysical excitement and some hope to defeat mortality. In reality, you are like a drop from an ocean that returned to the ocean. The next drop that separates from the ocean - is it in any way an incarnation of the previous drop? do they have some separate entity in common?

Clouds of leftover energies carrying memories and conditioning sometimes are absorbed in other people. That's what maybe happened to you although it seems like pure imagination. It has no value.

Leave aside all these nonsenses and concentrate on the inner if you want to progress spirituality.

And by the way, it is not such an honor to be associated with Sri Aurobindio. His books and especially the Integral Yoga are full of incoherent and embarrassing patches. It is still better than the Mother who expresses ignorance in almost every sentence she utters.

Our so called mind has four

Our so called mind has four parts- 1. Agam – the soul, the witness; 2. Puram – the being that takes birth again and again; 3. Agapuram – the siththa, the will that decides; 4. Purapuram- budhi the intellect that which analyses.
The being is the thing that is reborn. That which store all the information of our past lives.

This is book knowledge what

This is book knowledge what you wrote that has nothing to do with reality. The inner reality (as well as the outer which are not separate) do not adhere to such discrete divisions. Investigate by yourself within you and you will see what I wrote above.

This is not book knowledge.

This is not book knowledge. This is how I feel inside. I feel all these four elements separately and distinctly.

As within so without; inner outer

"But if you don’t want to share what you know, that’s okay too. That’s my loss. But you are certainly free to be as selfish as you want to be."

I still can't figure out why even when my inner reality is that I won the lottery, my reality does not.

Darling, can you stop bullshitting, like, already?

Listen Mr 'whoever you believe you are',

It would be a good idea cut this nonsense right now. Whatever you want to believe in your delusions is your problem.

If you want some sane advice, get off your
"OMG! I was a real famous guy in my past birth! All you lost souls, please accept my last birth fame and gimme some respect here! If you say please, then I'll guide you and tell you who you were in your last birth, just like Buddha did!"
past-life horse, and start looking at reality beyond names and forms, lives and lifetimes...

There are quite a few Napoleons, Gandhis, Aurobindos, and others roaming around the countryside - many live in asylums too. Why don't you join them and leave the poor guys in this nice and quiet virtual space in peace?

BTW, I don't 'hate' you dear! I don't even know you! (And it seems, AS YET you don't know who you are either ...)

I am, yet I am not...
