Alvin Lal: Pranaam Guruji, are all souls the same thing, i.e. they all are dependent, need attachment, take re-birth (unless moksh), face result of deeds? Therefore is the soul in an animal, tree is no different to a soul in a man i.e. is it the same thing? If the above is true, then it is interesting that the soul in me today, could have been a tree in previous life? Also it is interesting that if the soul type in plants is the same soul type as humans, animals... yet we can consume and kill plants, but it is a sin to do so to animals and murder is criminal sin.. As per Vedas?

Alvin Lal: Pranaam guruji, the logic that, past karma's apply in this life and you will get birth in next life according to your karma in this life does not make sense. Guruji please clarify. If the above logic is true, then why is population on the increase and why is crime increasing, if the above logic is true, then human population should be decreasing, because re-birth will be in the form of Dog, Cat or lower..etc.. due to criminal activities (karma / deeds)... i.e. Why is population increasing if your re-birth is according to deeds done here in this life?
