reincarnation is the only logical reason why we suffer,everybody is suffering to some extent some more so than others, if this is the only life then god would give us all the same chance, no one would be favoured of others but this is not the case two men born on the same day in he same hospital one man is destined to a life of wealth ad prosperity yet another man is destined to a life of struggle and hardship,some people are born of sound body and mind yet some are physically and mentally challenged, some die at a young age some live till their a hundred, some are born humans and some are born in the lower species of life,all in all every living entity is moving thru bodys this is what reincarnation is -the transmigration of the soul from one body to another-and karma is directly associated with it.even in this lifetime we reincarnate,for the cells in the body are constantly dying and renewing themselves,i think after every seven years every single cell in the body will have died and been renewed, but the soul which is the life force, which is you, will have stayed the same so even in this lifetime we go thru many bodys and although the body has been and gone we still remain thats why an old person can still feel like a young person at heart,when the body becomes usless like an old coat then nature will remove us from that body and then we will be given a new coat(body)according to our karma, to begin the cycle of birth and death again.but the whole point of existence is to break free from this cycle of birth and death,but to merge with the impersonal brahman is like personality suicide it may be peacfull but is more like a dreamless sleep,their is another option and that is to engage the heart in the service of the supreme personality of godhead (bhagavan) this will bring you to the highest reality even higher than the impersonal brahman.
