It depends on karma when exactly the soul will take a re-birth
Ektaji, You said that when we die we are first received by our ancestors but are they not reborn? How would we meet them then?
The concept of time is applicable only to us humans not to the incorporeal world. Everybody does not take a birth immediately, it depends on karma when exactly the soul will take a re-birth. Therefore, it is not necessary that all my ancestors will have taken a birth by the time I leave this body. Ancestors means my parents, my grandparents, my great grand parents and so on ,as well as their families. Some may not take a body for eons. They are beyond time , something to meditate upon!
