The Present Life and the Effect of Karma

In Mahabharata, while guiling their days away in the forest, Darapadhi, Bheema, and Yudhistra had an argument. It was during that argument that Darupadhi came up with an example that illustrated the phenomeon of rebirth, or Janam Chakra.
She asked the question how an animal's new born baby knows to run and suck its mother's udders even moments after his birth?

She answered that it was impossible for a new born fawn or calf to have this knowledge unless it had already taken a birth in this world before. Every being had already taken birth in the world, and this showed that beings came to the world again and again.
