I was amazed when I first encountered the 3 year old boy reincarnation incident that originated from a region near the border of Syria and Israel. This boy claims that he was murdered in a previous life and then proceeded to show village elders where his body was buried…
3 Year Old Reincarnation Story
The boy originates from Golan Heights which is located near the border of Syria and Israel. He claimed that in his past life he was murdered by and axe and he was able to remember where his body was buried.
He then proceeded to lead the village elders to the place where his body laid and the location of the murder weapon. The resulting digs revealed skeleton remains and a buried axe…
Dr. Eli Lasch
Dr. Eli Lasch was a well known medical professional in this region due to his input into developing the medical system in Gaza. Lasch was present to witness the 3 year old boy reincarnation story as it developed.
Dr. Eli Lasch was an acquaintance of German therapist Trutz Hardo and he recounted the whole incident to him. Hardo then took the story and published it in a book he was writing on the subject of children’s past lives.
This particular boy belonged to the Druze ethnic group and they accept reincarnation as an everyday occurrence.
When he was born he ended up with a rather strange looking birthmark on his head that was red in color. The Druze religion believe that birthmarks are an indication of what happens during past life deaths.
When the boy was finally old enough to speak he managed to inform his horrified family that he had been killed by an axe blow to the head (where the birthmark sits!).
The Druze elders decided to take the boy to the village he claimed that he lived in his past life. When they arrived there the boy instantly remembered his old name so the elders questioned the locals about this name. They claimed that a man with that name had disappeared from the village four years earlier never to be seen again.
Attentions then turned to the subject of the boy’s killer in his previous life – he remembered his full name! They managed to track this man down and when the boy confronted him the shock on his face was there for all to see.
He immediately turned a ghostly white as the blood drained from his face but he was still adamant that he was not a murderer.
This was the point where the boy informed the elders he would be able to take them to his body and to the weapon used to kill him. They dragged the accused along and dug up the two spots the boy had chosen.
They found the skeleton remains with a cracked skull and the murder weapon – the wound to the skull corresponded to the young lad’s birthmark.
The accused broke down in visible despair as he knew the game was up – Dr. Lasch, the only non-Druze, witnessed the whole story unfold.
So what is to be made of this 3 year old boy reincarnation incident? Is it the first recorded crime solved by the forces of reincarnation?
The fact that Dr. Lasch was present throughout this whole process and the fact the boy was only three years old certainly gives the story some solid substance…
