There is sound evidence for reincarnation when, in 1930, a four-year-old girl named Shanti Deva from Delhi, India, told her parents that she had once lived in a place called Muttra. The young girl went on to say that she had been a mother of three who died in childbirth. Even more shocking, the girl knew her previous name was Ludgi.
Because the young girl continually related the story to her parents, they decide to investigate. It turns out there was a village called Muttra. Now it is known as Mathura. And that indeed a little more than four years before, there was a woman named Ludgi who had died in childbirth.
Shanti’s parents took her to the village where the girl began speaking the local dialect, which neither she nor her parents spoke. Shanti recognized her former community, husband, and children. Shanti even gave twenty-four accurate statements matching confirmed facts about Ludgi’s life. To date, this is one of the most compelling documented accounts for the existence of reincarnation.
