Chapter eight. Spiritual Evolution. The foundation of all spiritual knowledge is the understanding that we're not this body, but the eternal spiritual consciousness, consciousness is the life force that activates the body. The Bhagavad Gita. Chapter two Text 13 explains quote, as the embodied soul continually passes in this body from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A self realized soul is not bewildered by such a change. How does the spirit pass into another body? What type of body does the spirit pass into? How is the next bodily form decided? The Parma piranha. An ancient vedic bhakti text describes Calleja Nava lock sani stove. Ara locks, a vim sati, pre mayo rudra, santa, cat perfection. Um Dasa locks on um trim cell locks on e para vash, mature lock sani musa. These are the 900,000 species of aquatic life, two million species of plants and trees, 1.1 million species of insects, one million species of bird life, three million species of beasts and 400,000 species of human life. Hence, there are 8.4 million species of life forms throughout the creation. The meaning of species understood by biologists is different from the meaning implied here. The meaning used by biologists applies to the gross physical appearance or the gross morphological feature of the living material bodies. The vedek meaning, however, which is derived after thorough and careful analysis is based on the level of consciousness of the law living being. For example, biologists say that all human beings belong to one species, whereas the vedic literatures list, 400,000 species of human beings. In other words, there are 400,000 grades of human beings on different levels of consciousness For most degraded human beings to highly evolved pure spiritualists. The varieties of life forms are products of the combinations and permutations of the three modes of material nature goodness, passion and ignorance. The life forms are just like temporary houses or apartments of various sizes, shapes and colors in which the eternal self or living being temporarily resides. one may occupy one of these apartments according to one's ability to pay the rent, but all types of apartments nevertheless exist simultaneously. Similarly, the spirit, according to his karma is given to the facility to occupy one of these bodily forms, but all the forms exist simultaneously. Therefore the body does not evolve. The spirit evolves by paying the price of karma transmigration. In the material world, the consciousness has two kinds of coverings the subtle body and the gross body actually consciousness enjoys through the subtle body, which is composed of mind, intelligence, and false ego. The gross body is the instrumental outer covering. When the gross body is lost or when it dies, the root of the gross body, the mind, intelligence and false ego continues and brings about another gross body. Although the gross bodies change the real root of the gross body, the subtle body is always there. The subtle bodies, activities, be they pious or impious, create another situation for the consciousness to enjoy or suffer in the next gross body. Thus the subtle body continues, whereas the gross bodies change one after another. The process of transmigration of the consciousness is very subtle, Krishna says in the Bhagavad gita that yarn yarn piece Myron bolivar hottie, anti calabar um tar tom, balti county area, sarah todd Bava kavita. Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body. That state will attain without a fail Bhagavad Gita, chapter eight, Text six. According to the condition of the mind at the time of death, the minute consciousness enters into the womb of a particular mother through and then the consciousness develops a particular type. Get the body of a human being, a cat, a dog or any other species, depending on all these factors. After death the living being gets another body according to his desires. Total impression on the mind and one's karmic reactions. So at the time of death the living entity under supervision of higher authorities is taken to another gross body. The process is just like air carrying fragrance Bhagavad Gita, 15 8. This is basically the mechanism of reincarnation. There are 8.4 million species for the consciousness to choose from. Think of any desire if someone likes to sleep a lot. The material nature will give him a polar bear's body so that he can sleep for six months in a year without being ridiculed. If someone delights in eating flesh. Nature may award him the body of a tiger lower forms of life, such as plants, animals or birds do not suffer from sinful activities because they never violate the laws of nature. A tiger for instance does not commit sinful activity by killing its prey because his body is meant to act in that way, it is properly equipped for that purpose Karma, which determines the path one takes through various species or to other human bodies, is accrued only in the human form of life. The consciousness uses up its accumulated karma as he passes through the nonhuman species. Thus we can understand how the human form of life is like a crossroad, where one has to clearly decide which road to take the path to heaven, the path to **** or the path to God. Originally the consciousness is fully conscious of its spiritual identity, but when the consciousness desires to enjoy this material world, it falls down from the spiritual platform. First the consciousness accepts a body that is human in form but gradually due to his degraded activities, He trans migrates into lower forms of life into the animal, plant and aquatic forms by the gradual process of spiritual evolution, the living entity again attains the body of a human being and is given another chance to get out of the process of transmigration. If he again misses his chance in the human form to understand his position, he is again placed in the repeated cycle of birth and death in various types of bodies. The living entity falls from the human body to the animal kingdom owing to the bad karma and animalistic propensities after he has worked off his karma in the non human species. Eventually he returns to the human platform where he gets a new opportunity to carve out a new destiny. While the living entity is in the animal body, he loses the opportunity to make spiritual progress. Only in the human form of life can one choose to perform spiritual activities like chant the hare Krishna mantra and make tangible spiritual advancement on the progressive march back to the spiritual world. On the other hand, living entities in non human bodies are forced to act only by instinct till they get a human body. The human form of life is especially meant to facilitate the liberation of the conditioned consciousness. Therefore, one who abuses human life by engaging in sense gratification, loses this opportunity to get out of this Samsara.
