There are many beliefs about the afterlife across the many religions that have existed since ancient times. It’s one of the most pressing questions to our existence.
We only live so long, but what happens to us when we die? Are we nothing but bodies, destined to rot in the dirt and never think again, or is there a better answer?
Spiritual leaders have sought these answers and are still pursuing them. No one has solid proof beyond the basics of their faith on what happens to us after death.
Except for one. One woman claimed to be a product of reincarnation – as directly as possible.
She had the memories of an entire past life of someone she did not know who died before her time in another town, which no one else in her place of birth knew or heard of before.
Shanti Devi, as a child, had the memories and recollection of a 20-year-old woman’s entire life that she never met back or could have met in any way.
Her unique case laid the groundwork to further the belief of reincarnation into a theory, with practice behind it.
10 /10 First Of Many
Before Shanti, there was a young Indian woman named Lugdi, who had a quiet and peaceful life in Mathura up until her untimely death in her early 20s.
She was born in 1902 and died giving birth to her only son. She was laid to rest, and 14 months later, had returned in a new, younger body.
9 /10 Early Memories
According to Shanti, before she could even speak, she knew about her past life.
She remembered her name, her husband’s name, the name they planned to give their son, her village, and every other tiny detail that became her. But she wasn’t there. She was born in Delhi, about 90 miles from her first home.
