Hare Krsna dear devotees, pranam dandavat, AGTSP! AGTSG!

There are many people who dies as soon as they take birth. What happens to those person? I mean where do they go after death? When they have not performed any karma, how is it decided where they have to go? Why is their life span so short? Also many even die at a very tender age, where do they go after death?

It will be very much appreciated if the answer is given with reference to the shastras. I apologize if this Q offends anyone. Haribol!

Your humble servant.


Thank you

    Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances!

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    i heard in the lecture that sometimes the person from whom we indebted and did not give our debt in that birth that person becomes our child and dies immediately in order to give that pain back.

    We have changed billions of lives. And we cultivated unlimited desires. And it is not true that for one life we wash away all karma. No. There are stock of karmas. And in this life we take only one peace of that karma.

    Because of that if child dies immediately after taking birth does not mean that now he does not have karma to take birth again. He may get the body according to his previous lives also.

    Your servant,
