Do past lives exist? In the 1930s, a little girl from a remote village in India was discovered, and her story marveled scholars, sages, and skeptics worldwide. Her name was Shanti Devi, and this is her reincarnation story. If you’ve ever wondered whether or not past lives or reincarnation was real, there are thousands of documented cases of children who recall extraordinary past-life memories in detail beyond their years or comprehension. Such was the case for Shanti.
