1977 Conversations and Morning Walks

As we are not this body, past life means there was another body; we have forgotten it. Just like at night we dream, "I have gone to some foreign place and talking with some foreigners and so on, so on." But in the morning that situation is changed, and we forget everything. Again, at night we forget this body and we dream in another body. Every night we have experience that we forget this body.

Prabhupāda: ...otherwise we are all part and parcel of God. (translated into Italian throughout for woman guest) When we realize this, then our life is perfect.

Italian woman: (Italian—translated into English by translator throughout)

Translator: She's saying that after rediscovering of last past life...

Prabhupāda: Past life means... As we are not this body, past life means there was another body; we have forgotten it. Just like at night we dream, "I have gone to some foreign place and talking with some foreigners and so on, so on." But in the morning that situation is changed, and we forget everything. Again, at night we forget this body and we dream in another body. Every night we have experience that we forget this body. This is going on.

Translator: She says she's conscious of the relation, karmic relation, with a person that for last life she's having, and right now that person is also present with her in this life.

Prabhupāda: Past life?

Translator: Yes. She's says that four past lives she's having some relations.

Prabhupāda: Yes, that is forgotten or...

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: She says that she's remembered it.

Translator: Yeah. She said she remembers it.

Prabhupāda: If she remembers, that's a special qualification; but generally people forget. It is not astonishing. You can remember, but that is rare, very rare.

Translator: So she would like to know from you, Śrīla Prabhupāda, if you can give her help to solve the situation she's in.
