Abstract: Health is the best source of virtue, wealth, gratification and emancipation. Dharma, Artha, Kaam and Moksha, also called the Purushartha Chatustaya, form the blueprint for human fulfilment. The concept of punarjanma is devised from Vedic literature, explained in Darshanas and popularized by mythology, whereas its evidence is available in Ayurveda. In modern science, no one believes in the existence of the soul or the concept of rebirth. Still, a lot of research has been undergoing to think about whether any such entity exists after death or, even if it exists, how the transmigration of the soul occurs. In Charaka Samhita, while discussing how Atma (Soul) transmigrates from one Sharira to another Sharira, the reason quoted for the transmigration of Atma is because of the Purva Janma Krta Karma. The Preaching of salvation itself provides evidence of rebirth. To believe in the theory of reincarnation, Acharyas said that the person must have faith in the shastras even when they have not perceived or experienced it. So in this article, an effort has been made to explore the hidden truth behind this concept.
