If you land on a samsara space as its reincarnation you could go back to the beginning. For Karma you could roll again because its a counting up of all the good things and bad… things you have done - related to numbers. And for moksha you could go and join the person who is furthest - as this means joining your soul to the highest god.
Do Hindus believe that a moksha is the good and bad deeds that a person engages in over one or more lifetimes?
There are four different paths to achieve Moksha which a Hindu can take. The Hindu can choose one or all four of the paths they are: 1 The path of knowledge - Jnana-Yoga Spiri…tual knowledge -leading to the knowledge of the relationship between the soul (atman) and God (Brahman) 2 The path of meditation - Dhyana-yoga The idea is to concentrate so you can reach the real self within you and become one with Brahman 3 The Path of Devotion - Bhakti-yoga Choosing a particular god or goddess and worshipping them throughout your life in actions, words and deeds. 4 The path of good works - Karma-yoga This involves doing all your duties correctly throughout your life.

Cubists studied objects, broke them down into pieces, and then reassembled them in an abstract form. Their art often depicted objects from a multitude of angles, "shattering" …them so to speak and creating a very ambiguous space. They wanted to simplify objects and revolutionize the way we look at art by showing us all of an objects faces at once. Information from Gardner's Art Through the Ages: A Global History by Fred S. Kleiner
Path of work, path of knowledge, and path of devotion Path of work, path of knowledge, and path of devotion One has to understand that Moksha (liberation) is not so…mething very cheap to accomplish. It requires lot of determination in living austere life. When I say austere life means not like one abandon all his material comfort and go and meditate in a jungle. One who lives unattached in his existing living condition is said to be following austere life. When we talk about Moksha what does that mean.? When the soul leaves the current body it travels to it's source where it came from. For ex when a prisoner is released where he goes permanently.? He goes back to his home to re-union with his family. Similarly when the Soul leave the current body and without transmigrating from one material body to another material body it directly goes to the spiritual sky then we say the soul has attained Moksha (liberation).
The two primary forces of Human beings: To know what Moksha is, we must know that we have, 1. A mighty, inexhaustible and uncontrollable Involuntary force 2. A small, tra…nsient and easily controllable Voluntary force. Brahman is Involuntary force in the purest form. All other Hindu gods are a blend of Involuntary and Voluntary forces. Thus, we can attain Moksha easily through a Hindu god by getting rid of the voluntary component of that god. Shiva and Krishna are best suited for this purpose. Voluntary/ Manual force - the double edged sword: The Voluntary force is the shockabsorber of our life, as it enables us to change with great ease. However, its over use makes our life unstable, chaotic and also abolishes thinking. It is at this stage that we must attain Moksha. This involves getting rid of, 1. Differences among the various activities of our life 2. Our ability to change. Advantages of Involuntary/ Automatic force: Leading a life with pure involuntary force would, 1. Make our life effortless and stress free 2. Get rid of our acquired knowledge and enable us to use pure Inborn knowledge called Brahma Jnana. The Hindu paths to Moksha: The transient, manual force is necessary to deal with a change and thus whenever we become helpless we have a tendency to use it and thus make our life stressful and tiring. There are four ways of avoiding use of voluntary force and getting rid of it from our life. 1. Bhakti Marga: In this we develop faith in the involuntary force and keep using it even if it leads to repeated disasters, until the involuntary force, 1. Finds similarities among all the activities of our life 2. Gets rid of activities that are grossly dissimilar 2. Karma Marga: The Karma acts as a band filter, filtering off activities producing both positive and negative emotions and allowing just unemotional activites. Cycles of rebirth doesn't mean that we are born again and again. It is just symbolic of repeated starting of a new ways of life whenever our life is ruined. 3. Jnana Marga: In this we try to find out similarities among all activities of our life and ways to discard or ignore differences among them. 4. Raja Marga: Since the Involuntary force is mightier, in this approach we use it with Kingly authority, with the hope that voluntary activities surrender, thus enabling us to execute all the activities with the Involuntary force only. Original Meditation - the easiest and the most reliable way to attain Moksha: In this, we sit motionless and keep generating involuntary force, by Isometrically contracting (hardening) the lower end of the band like Hyoglossus muscles, that extend from the sides of our tongue downwards to the U-shaped hyoid bone above our Adam's apple. This would filter off all Voluntary activities and thus enable us to attain Moksha. This is the final common pathway to Moksha even when we use any one of the Margas to attain Moksha. Original Meditation was the first choice of all sages, who attained Moksha.
