Creepy Mysteries of Shanti Deva

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Shanti Devi (a name meaning “Goddess of Peace”) was born in Delhi, India on 11 December, 1926. During her early years she did not speak a lot, even though young children are generally plaguing their parents with all manner of questions, Shanti Devi did not. However, at the age of four she began to talk a lot more, not so much about her life and experiences, but rather of the memories of another life.

She talked of how her real home was not in Delhi, but was rather 150kms away in the city of Mathura (earlier known as Muttra). It was also here that she stated her husband lived.

Main: A young Shanti Devi front and center. Left: Shanti Devi as an adult. Right: The place where Shanti Devi pointed out as the hiding spot for money.

Although many believe she was discouraged by her parents from speaking of this ‘other life’, they rather told their daughter that her other life was in the past, and that the now is what mattered, and to leave the rest behind. This did not sit well with the young girl who ran away from home at age six in order to travel to Mathura, and her real home.

She was eventually caught and taken back to Delhi, but the experience did little to dissuade her and soon she began to speak of her other life at length at school. The headmaster (some sources say ‘uncle’) was intrigued by the details that this young girl was able to recall, details that seemed to take her story from that of an overactive mind to something more interesting. It was when she gave the names of her husband, children and the details of her death that the headmaster was able to locate someone important to the story.

Shanti Devi claimed that her husband Kedarnath Chaube (some sources say Kedar Nath) was a merchant and that she herself had died nine/ten days after giving birth to a child. With this information her headmaster was able to locate a man named Kedar Nath who had lost his wife, Lugdi, nine years earlier and ten days after giving birth.

Having found a man who seemed to be linked to the girls story the headmaster arranged for Kedar Nath to travel to Delhi. Shanti Devi was able to recognise him immediately on site as her husband, and was able to recognise ‘her son’. It did not take long for Shanti to convince this man that she was, in fact, his wife for she knew details that were intimate and secret within the family.

Mahatma Gandhi was soon informed about what was happening with the ‘supposed’ reincarnation and set up an enquiry to study the girl and the story. With stringent conditions imposed on the commission, and Shanti Devi herself, they travelled to Mathura where the story gets even more amazing.

Shanti herself found the family home, recognised members if the family, and even knew the old layout of the furniture and possessions (there had been a refurbishment since the wife’s death). She recalled family member’s secrets that she, as the past wife, could only know in confidence. She also immediately began speaking in the local dialect.

Finally, and most interesting of all, Shanti Devi was able to tell her husband that he had failed to keep several promises he made to his wife on her deathbed.

After the visit and returning home the commission came to the conclusion that Shanti Devi was irrefutably the reincarnation of Lugdi Devi. Several other people (from all over the world including an award winning Swedish journalist) made their own independent investigations, and came to the same conclusion, although many skeptics say otherwise, that there must have been elements of luck, coincidence and outright fraud to this event.

Shanti Devi passed away 27 December, 1987. She never married. Although she talked about her past life as Lugdi many times, she only did several formal interviews. She also went under hypnotic regression where she gave details of her death and what took place between, that event and her reincarnation… but that you can look into for yourself, there’s much more to this story than what is presented here, and all of it makes for interesting reading.

      What is CREEPY about it? You will also reincarnate! Be happy that you will not go to hell, instead, because there is no eternal condemnation. There is only karma.

      • CrowPie

        I don’t want to reincarnate. I want to be finished with this crazy merry go round.

        I want to step off….no second ride for me. Tks….but no tks…..I’ve had enough.

        • Damien

          Tough. Basic law of physics: Energy cannot be destroyed. You (Hinduism would not consider consciousness to be ‘you’ anymore than what you were thinking 20 minutes ago would be ‘you’) along with the rest of us are stuck here for all the trillions of trillions of years the universe has in store for us

        • Non Christian American

          As if YOU have a clue, Damine!
          Remember your own “Eternal Memories”, Damine, for what you spew forth is about as humanly retarded as the judeo-christo-musli SCUMDUMB CRAP!
          Let’s start right at the point that you self deceived humans just can’t get by.
          There is NOT one god.
          THERE ARE TRILLIONS! And YOU are one of them!
          Also, you existed BEFORE this Universe was formed BY US for our mutual entertainment, and you will exist after this Universe is LONG GONE!

          If you regain your Eternal Memory (like I am), there will be NO debate about these facts.
          You can start immediately to do this by de-calcifying your own Pineal gland.
          It is your own “Spiritual Connection” to yourself in our eternal home.

          Even the ancients were NOT as ignorant about this fact as you so called “Moderns” are now.
          For IT IS “the seat of the soul”!

          For Any One god believer!
          Damine, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Muslims!!!!!

          This “One god” consciousness stuff is like “Pushing Communist MALE Tyranny” for eternity!

          So, you “speculate” that there is NO individualism in the “mass perceived” world of the “metaphysical”?

          Christians, Jews, Muslims, the reality is there are trillions upon trillions of “gods” where we reside, always.

          Not one, but trillions, each with their own, distinct “personality”.

          Christians, Jews, Muslims, you are one of the trapped “Eternal memory” stripped “gods”!

          Your thoughts control your DNA because “your” thoughts do NOT originate here.

          Before this universe was “formed’ and used, by us, we existed.

          That “internal voice” is NOT “god”, is not, universal conscious, it is YOU, always residing in our eternal “home”.

          Your “Eternal Memory” speaks to you from our home regularly. Some call it “god’s voice”. Some call it the “Sub-conscious”. What it really is……. is YOU, with your trillion upon trillions of “years” of “Eternal Memories”. No wonder that all are “that smart’! You have existed before the dawn of time here, in this physical universe.

          “Here” is an “amusement park” for the trillions upon trillions of pure energy form self-aware sentinel beings, the gods, (US) that have existed since before the beginning of time itself, here, in this physical universe.

          We do NOT reside “here” at all!

          Never have, never will.

          We exist in a “formless, timeless” void.

          We have NO physical body of any type.

          NO sight, no hearing, no touch, no body, no “reproduction”, no sensation, NO LIGHT to “see” with, none of what you “believe” will be “permanent” in any imagined after life.

          We identify one another by the unique “wave-length”, “osculation”, or “vibration” that our “self aware life form” exists at.

          We are “Pure formless energy” “Vibrating” at different and specific wave lengths for all of eternity.

          NOTHING can cause us any “pain” or “harm” or “destroy” us in ANY WAY!
          All of the above (sight, sound, light, time, etc.), and much more is why we come “here”.

          We experience none of the sensations and experiences gained “here” in our eternal pure energy form and home.

          All “roles” are played “here” by all who come “here”.

          Anything we “think” here becomes a part of this physical reality.

          We should be able to go from “Life form” to “Life form” “here” at our will.

          That is how we designed this universe to be, and it still is.

          But, that damn “Light” present at the moment of bodily “death” is such a magnet for most (complete with “overwhelming sense of “love”, with fresh human memories materialized, and waiting to greet you to “bring you to the light, to “love”) is a “high voltage bug like zapper, that STRIPS you completely of all eternal memories, which includes the “life” that you just departed from.

          NO one from our eternal “home” EVER has to incorporate into a Human body, or, if they have, come back here, EVER!

          It simply does not matter.

          NO loyalty should be extended to the “Ride Car” (“your” physical body here) used here.

          Are you “Loyal” to the Ride Car that takes you around the track at “Magic Mountain”, located within Disney Land?

          Do you “pine” for the vehicle that you used when here, and now is waiting for someone else from our real realm to “occupy” it??

          If you do “regain” your “Eternal Memories”, you will see immediately and agree.

          Here is very temporal. Easily constructed and then “reassembled’ in the blink of an eye. Every atom of everything constructed here is always blinking “out’ of existence, and then back into existence, simultaneously.
          Physics, and its very exacting mathematical “proofs” of this reality, confirms this fact.

          Meet two newly discovered “particles’. The two new particles are named Xib’- and Xib*- (pronounced “zi-b-prime” and “zi-b-star”). Both Xib-and Xib*- are a type of particle called a baryon.

          Baryons include familiar particles like protons and neutrons, which are held together by strong force.

          (The other fundamental forces in the universe are gravity, electromagnetism, and weak force. Strong force holds particles together; weak force makes particles decay.)

          Scientists understand the basic theory of strong force, and they can use the theory to estimate the sizes and masses of different baryons.

          But the mathematical equations behind strong force are incredibly complex.

          That’s because the particles they apply to have some wacky characteristics.

          Part of a baryon’s mass can “spontaneously” burst “into and out of” existence.

          This weird flux makes it difficult to use strong force to predict their mass.

          Part of every atom that makes up our bodies “can “spontaneously” burst “into and out of” existence.

          “WE” are NOT “here”.

          WE project here, into these “bodies” from our common ‘Eternal Home”.

          The Human Brain is a Bio-mechanical ‘receiver” and can funnel tremendous power directly from our real “selves”, containing all of our individually gained ‘Eternal Memories”.

          We CAN move from “body to body”.

          We CAN discontinue “Projecting” here from OUR common eternal home, any time we want.

      There’s only one way, CrowPie: Unconditional love for each and everyone, even pitiful love for evildoers, doing to everyone as you would have done to yourself. No hatred, no revenge. Otherwise you will need more lessons…

      Damine: There is also the UNCONSCIOUS SELF, more or less the soul, where you have the real self that grows and develops all the time and, especially, with each incarnation and karmic lesson.

      The conscious “self” of the rational mind is an illusion.

        I appreciate your thoughts, however, I have a belief that runs very close to yours…..did you know that many Believe that Christ spent his childhood in India? (No hatred, no revenge…do unto others as you would have them do unto you?)

        I believe that Christ is the only way. I always have.

      Reincarnation is about demon/demons moving from one human to the next making that host believe they had past lives when it is the demon who lived these lives through that Human they infested.

      Usually the demons will kill the host as soon as they know they have secured that Human for Hell unless they are cast out in Jesus’ name! Riches, psychic abilities and the rest of what the demons offers to corrupt your soul for Hell is not worth an eternity in Hell but each to their own!
