Deeper Teachings by Genuine Spiritual Masters*

Avatar Meher Baba and his teachings on reincarnation and karma. Note that the first website linked here contains an online library of several of Meher Baba's works.

The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda online. At his initial address to the World Parliament of Religions at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, the Swami was given a standing ovation after simply uttering his first words of welcome, "Sisters and brothers of America". (To read this speech, click on "Volume I", "Addresses at the Parliament of Religions", then on "Response to Welcome"). The story of Vivekananda's coming to America is included in "In Another Life", presented by a monk of the Order.

The entire Bhagavad Gita online

Excerpts from "The Problem of Rebirth" by Sri Aurobindo. Note this is an advanced treatment of the subject, and one really needs to spend time with the book absorbing his entire argument as it progresses through each chapter.

Sufi mystical poet Jalaluddin Rumi.

The songs of Hafiz.

The songs of Kabir.

The poetry of Farid ud-Din Attar. (I believe that in the first poem, "The Dullard Sage," the line should read "In the candle flame of His face I have forgotten all the answers"--which is to say, "His" refers to God, not to the moth.)

Includes a question and answer session with Ramana Maharshi about reincarnation. I think the introductory commentary may be a bit misleading, if the author feels that Ramana Maharshi was saying that the doctrine of reincarnation is mistaken. Ramana Maharshi acknowledges (grudgingly) that reincarnation exists from our spiritually ignorant perspective, i.e., if we accept that we are a limited individuality with a body, and that we are born and that we die, then, along with that package, we also reincarnate. But he is pointing the questioner to a deeper understanding, that of his real identity as the true Self, which in fact does not reincarnate, per se, because it is never limited to the body. Keep in mind that in a Q&A format, the master tailors his response to the spiritual understanding and preparedness of the questioner; but when this session is copied down and read by someone else, it may or may not be how the master would have responded to that reader.
