Pl bear with me for the questions that may appear stupid , but nevertheless throw some more light on the following aspects, please
What is exactly 'Prana' , is it not just the energy (the prakruthi)??
Are panchayandriyas not part of physicalbody...just as organs?
"As directed by Eswara gets into another body according to karmapala" you said,
but treating Eswara as someone sitting away accunting for all karmas appears more dwaitic why even abrhamic
Please, please dont ever conclude I am critical or sceptical ..... I am trying get how Advaita vedanta sees all these things whose very basic is " aham Brahmasmi' and asserts realizing that is that waht amounts to mukthi
As I said earler , my little knwoledge about the whole vedanta/ scriptures is from english translations and books like that of swami Vivekananda, swami Ramateertha etc. may be due to this limited knwoledge I am asking these questions so that I can get the whole picture

When the gross body is dead the praana leaves the body carrying with it the
mind and the panchendrias and is directed by Easwara into another body
as the person's karmaphala warrants.
