How to ensure my deceased husband’s soul is at peace



I lost my husband a few days back.

1) How can I ensure his soul is in peace? I have heard charity helps. Please guide.

2) After approximately how many years of death does a soul reincarnate?

—Bharati, India


Dear Bharati,

I’m sorry that your husband has passed away. My prayers are with his soul as it soars in the Divine embrace. My prayers are also with you as you move forward in your life.

Swami Kriyananda wrote a very inspiring Astral Ascension Ceremony that I think would be helpful for you to read. My suggestion is that you meditate first to get calm and centered, and then mentally read the Astral Ascension Ceremony, with the consciousness that you are reading it to your husband’s soul. This will allow your husband’s soul to be at peace.

What will ultimately support your husband’s soul will be your own spiritual development. As you grow in realizing your true nature in God then that will be a blessing not only to yourself, but to those around you, whether they be in the physical world or in the astral realm.

There is no set formula for the timing of a soul to reincarnate. Much depends on the karma involved and how that karma is being released on the astral plane. The best thing for us to do is to tune into the soul of our loved ones when they are no longer in the body and pray for their ultimate union with the Divine.

Many blessings to you. May God’s love be with you.

In divine friendship,

Nayaswami Pranaba
