The Buddha, by the Mexican artist Octavio Ocampo.
After Enlightenment the Buddha remembers countless past existences.

From the viewpoint of the Self, there is no reincarnation; there is not even incarnation. The Self does not incarnate. If Self and World are indeed one and the same, how can it be said that the Self enters into a particular physical form? How can the all-pervading Self enter into itself?
However, from a human viewpoint, there is reincarnation.

We know that we have lived before
Nobody dies - its just the Door
The Ascent of Man - Transmigration
Our Lives through Death - Reincarnation

Hi PK. Thanks for commenting. like everything in the world, I guess it's relative. The Self cannot die, as It was never born, but from the perspective of ego consciousness, it appears as if we are born, die and are reborn.
