Answer by Niraj Bidawatka:
In the circle of learned men, this question never arises because the educated and learned men are very well aware about the existence of life after death. It is only in the society of foolish men that this answer remains unanswered.
Those who are educated in the modern system, are unaware of this basic fact because they are not given any education about the soul. Unless one is taught about the existence of soul, one cannot factually understand that there is life after death.
The modern education system is simply churning out hard-working . Such innocent persons are unfortunately being given such an education, which revolves around the bodily concept of life – even so-called highly educated persons holding so-called exalted degrees and designations such as Doctors, PhDs, Judges, etc. do not know about the existence of the soul.
Whereas, even an uneducated fool in the Vedic society knew about life after death. The Bhagavad Gita gives complete information about the soul and about the existence of life after death. The Bhagavad Gita was spoken to Arjuna, who was speaking like an ignorant fool, and the first subject, which Krishna touched upon, was the existence of soul and informed him that there is life after death. If one talks foolishly, like Arjuna was doing, the first lesson that needs to be taught to him is that about the existence of life after death. Not only does life after death exist, but before this present life also, we have had innumerable lives.
So life after death exists. Complete information is available in the books of our spiritual master, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
