Because manas is the human mind, and it is re-born each time.
The causal body, the atma-buddhi, is the Reincarnating Ego which
puts forth a new "ray" or manas at the beginning of each re-incarnation.

This is the typical exoteric view of reincarnation, but not
what was taught by HPB. The human monad is reborn each time.
The "aroma" of each life is stored, not in or by the human monad,
but by and in the atma-buddhi. If you look at it as body, soul, and spirit,
then only the spirit survives and reincarnates, forming a new soul
and new body each time.
