In his previous birth Karna received a boon that he can survive death a 1000 times.

And to kill him once one has to pray to god for 1000 years.

Then how did he die?

    I wanted to know how did he died in his previous birth. Both the post you highlighted says about his past life but did not tell how he died. – Rasaiya Apr 22 '16 at 18:46
  • If you look at the linked answers, you make out that he did not die or died of natural causes. If you want you can edit one of those questions (e.g., this one) and add your question about how did he die in his previous birth. A totally separate question on just how did he die in his previous birth seems redundant to me. – sv. Apr 27 '16 at 21:37

he was dambhodbhav demon in last birth...as u know nar & narayan who were arjun & krishna of next birth defeated him...dambhodbhav got boon of 1000 sheilds & whoever break sheild will die...nar used to fight 1000 yrs & narayan used to meditate then when nar break the sheild & die the narayan by mediation's punya used to bring nar back to life & then nar meditate & narayan fight & so on they broke 999 sheilds but then with 1 sheild left the demon ran to abode of sun & then took birth of karna...& it is also said that after karna birth karna took a birth of devotee of lord shiva who was siru thonda nayanar...as per south indian beliefs...:)
