Kripa: Why don't we remember incidents of previous births?
Swami Ramswarup: In the present life, even we do not remember about the events of our childhood. We forget so many events which take place some years back. It is difficult to say that what vegetable, dal or fruit, we took in the dinner just 10-15 days ago. So, what to talk about the remembrance of past life? We can only say that it is all under the administration of Almighty God that we forget about previous lives' events. This matter has already been placed on the article entitled After Death.
