The first birth is  the natural birth or the animal birth. The second birth is the human birth. The third birth is the divine birth. The first happens in the womb. The second in the mind. The third in the heart. The first happens because of the union between two bodies. The second because of the union between the mind and the body. And the third because of the union between the individual Self and the Universal Self. The first is adhi-bhuatika. The second adhi-daivika. And the third is adhyatma. Svadhyaya (self-study) leads to the second and adhyatma to the third. When you hear people indulging in rape and such heinous crimes, you have to remember that these people are a species in themselves, not truly human, not truly animals but somewhere in between.  They do not belong to any religion.
