Accidental Death

Query: Accidental Death... My Daddy passed away in accident. I am so much attached to my Dad. Still now I could not believe his death. I really want him in all aspects. I dont feel him but comes in my dreams but I cant see his face. I want to see him.


Kaivalya Jnani:
The world seems to end whenever someone really as close as mother or father dies. These are neither day-to-day happening... nor are we prepared for such close encounters with death! However, life always goes on undeterred by the happenings of the world. God almighty does not seem to care for his beloved children. Why the death of one... whom we loved so much!

Perhaps... human beings are not supposed to understand (rather destined to understand) the complicated structure of death... and why so? It is for the simple reason that death for a human being matters nothing for the soul atman within. In the perennial journey for the soul atman within... death is but changing of garment by the soul atman within!


Ever since every soul atman started on its cosmic journey... the soul atman manifests a new form... a new journey of life after the death of the body in the previous manifestation. The life cycle of the soul atman is one single continuous span of life... a long journey of 8.4 million manifestations and earthly life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years... a long journey indeed!

You were born to your parents as the chromosomes of yours matched theirs. In the system of God nothing happens by chance... all his premeditated! As we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more! As was the karma of your father... the residual balance of karma of your father from all previous manifestations... similarly was his fate!

If destiny demanded the death of your father at his age... nothing on earth including God almighty could have changed destiny!


Imagine a situation in the earlier manifestation when you were the father and your father in present life your son. Due to some predicament... the son left the father in between! The father irritated by the behavior of the son retorted... in the next life I shall leave you midway as you are leaving me know. You are not to blame... none else also is to blame... it is the play of destiny!

In the cosmic system... it is our soul atman that is primary. The body... the human form is but a garment... Manifested by the soul atman again and again... life after life... manifestation after manifestation! No two manifestations... no two lives are interconnected... the prime reason why we do not remember the workings of our previous life.

From the point of view of the soul atman... there is an interconnection between different phases of life but for the manifested form... the human body... there is no connection!


Vinitha... in the game of life... none is a winner or a loser! Life goes on and on as it is! The recent carnage in Mumbai confirms the fact. Life goes on... no matter what! What is death for the human form is but a new coat... a new garment... a new body for the soul atman within! This is the prime essence of the teachings of the Sacred Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna.

However best one may try... we simply cannot contact those who have left us for they may have (the soul within may have) manifested a new body... a new journey of life! Dependent upon the residual balance of karma... it is most likely that the member of the family who just left us lurking in the dark may be born in the same family as a child.

When my mother was about to die... I knew three days before that she wanted to leave the body. I could communicate with my mother mentally. Without speaking a single word... I conveyed to her that it was within my means to transfer 10 years of my life to her... which she bluntly refused! My mother was very frail bodily... she only said (the soul atman of my mother said)... why I must enhance the sufferings further... I am looking forward to get a new body... a new coat... Do not stop me now!


Three days after... My mother died happily in sleep. That is how life was meant to be! As the knower of Bhagavad Gita I can say with confidence that no soul atman can affect the workings of other soul atman. For the death of your father... you were in no way responsible in present or previous lives.

The present human form is limited to one manifestation only. Only God knows what form we manifest in the next manifestation! All is dependent upon the residual balance of karma of all the manifestations manifested by the soul atman within. As is the residual balance of karma... so is the next manifestation undertaken by the soul atman of your father.

We simply cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree... it simply cannot be! If the residual balance of one demand getting birth in the house of a cobbler... one simply cannot manifest the form of a prince. As far as your father is concerned... simply concentrate on what your father wanted to do in life.


Stick to those principles in life which your father wanted to see in you. If your father were alive... the way he would have wanted you to grow... you must pursue the same path... with passage of time you will be at peace with the image of your father. Never curse or anger at anybody for the happenings in your life! The Sacred Bhagavad Gita prohibits taking such a path.

Those who accomplish... those who have dearer goals in life... always look ahead in life. Whatever has happened is past... and as none can undo the past... we need to get ahead in life! Simply concentrate with all your energies (with all eggs in one basket) on the goal of your life dear to your heart... you shall never fail!

If you have lost something very dear... you shall also regain many things in life for which you were never prepared. If we suffer... we also encounter happiness in different stages of life! That is how the process of life in the cosmic system goes on and on.


You have your family... your relatives... your friends (well-wishers)... take care of them! In return... they shall also take care of you. But in all circumstances just pursue the goal of your life. Always remember 99% people in life never form a goal. Their life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. If you do not have a definite goal... form one!

Having a goal in life is journey half covered.
