Reincarnation into Animal Bodies

Does reincarnation into Animal Bodies ever happen? A short talk.

Unedited Transcript:

A cyberspace devotee from Surya wonders, "Can humans incarnate into animals?"

Yes, that has been done occasionally. When someone has a very serious automobile accident, where the entire physical body is injured, if they have been murdered or in war time. They often incarnate into an animal, often a cow, as a resting situation to get all of the pranas and currents reorganized within their bodies. Their next life would be a human life. It doesn't mean, you have to reincarnate into an animal. It is only a convenience, for reorganizing the pranic forces and rejuvenating the astral body.

So loved is Siva-Shakti that all have an intimate relationship. So vast is His vastness, so over-powering is He that men cringe to transgress His will. So talked of is He that His name is on the lips of everyone--for He is the primal sound.
