Let us realise that in samsara we travel alone. This bhava or the existence we are experiecing today will go on interpreted as self. But with death we part from this life to begin another span of life all alone in one of the 31 planes. In each existance ( bhava) we experience new associates and forget our past existences.
Gandhi once had said that death is a blessing to forget the past.
In samsara each bhava is like travelling in a bus as we part from the rest of passengers and get then get in to the next bus( bhava).
