KARMA AND THE SCIENCE OF REBIRTH
Rebirth

Rebirth is also a well known but seldom really understood term from the Vedas. It is often called reincarnation, but this can be misleading. The ego we know and experience is not reborn. The personality of this particular incarnation is not particularly stable even within it. Most of us change significantly the idea of who we are several times in life. We cannot expect it to go on to another. Nor is our inner Self ever born, nor does it die, as its nature is eternal. The true reincarnating entity is the causal body, wherein our karmic impressions are stored. It is its stream of impressions that continues with the reflection of consciousness upon it but there never is any real separate self. The individual is only a power of Divine aspiration and service. 

Many ask, if reincarnation is a fact, how can the population continue to increase? Today there are many more times as many people as there were at any other stage in history. Where have all the souls suddenly come from? Neither the inner Self nor the causal body is a quantifiable entity. There is not a simple correspondence of one soul or causal body per physical body.
