Abstract: Reincarnation or the theory of life after death is a topic of bitter controversies these days. Volumes of books have been written on the topic. Articles and pamphlets are pouring in and yet the mystery of an after-life still remained unresolved. The different systems of philosophy which have spoken in favour of rebirth have not convinced scientifically minded people for they hold that such philosophical concepts also need to be supported by observation and experiments. The para psychologists are trying their best to unfold the mystery of life. We know that life itself is a mystery and death is second mystery and certainly then life after death is to be categorized as third mystery. Aurobindo too has not been able to solve this mystery of life after death. The doctrine of karma-conditioned rebirth is also an attempt of our country to solve why men are born with different tendencies and different aptitudes even in the same family. Eustace Miles, a believer in the theory of rebirth, in his book says ?Life after Death? that science has not explained, ?Though it unproved? says Miles, still it explains phenomenon which science leaves unexplained. It satisfies the craving which science does not satisfy. The inequalities of life cannot be explained if we do not believe in the theory of life after death.
