' Reincarnation '...

The memory of the past unfulfilled desires traps energy, which manifests itself as a person.

When its charge gets exhausted, the person dies.

Unfulfilled desires are carried over into the next birth.

I do not say that the same person is reborn.

It dies and dies for good.

But its memories remain and their desires and fears.

They supply the energy for a new person.

The real takes no part in it, but makes it possible by giving it the light.

-Nisargadatta Maharaj
