The Hindu's are firm believers of reincarnation, or each living being living countless lifetimes in different forms. Also important to them was the concept of karma. Karma, expressed broadly: "What you reap is what you sow", or the actions you commit now influence how your next life will turn out. In terms of how death and rebirth occured, the Hindu belief was that each living entity had a life essence (close to the idea of a soul) known as atman (aathma is how its pronounced). This atman is immortal, and once death occurs, it is freed from the old body, and moves into a new body. This cycle goes on forever, unless it can be broken by what is called moksha. like other religions Hinduism also has the concept of Heaven and Hell.But the ultimate goal is not to reach heaven but god himself.Dedicate ur life wholly to God to reach him.. but if we lead a life bound to the earthly relations we get to have a birth again.if we do good deeds and be good always we reach heaven and we are reborn again as a much better person like a chance given to u to achieve moksha! but if we do something wrong we are made to be born again in a much inferior body.But once Moksha is achieved there is no rebirth and we would be free from the cycle of birth. Interestingly the theory of reincarnation is being proved to be true.
it is called reincarnation
They believe in rebirth, and regeneration after death. But they say that all non-Hindu's are not reborn but a Hindu could be reborn as anything.
the Hindu word for rebirth of soul is Reincarnation (punarjanma). Reincarnation (punarjanma) is deeply rooted with Hindu culture.
Punarjanmam which means reincarnation. There are many Indian languages, hence the term may differ.
reincarnation is the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
Hinduism believes in rebirth and reincarnation of souls. So death is not a calamity, its a natural process in which transition happens from one state to another depending on their karma (sin).
To escape the cycle of rebirth. (reincarnation)
SAMSARA- samsara is the endless cycle of birth a.k.a the continual reincarnation. hope that helped!
if you die you can have rebirth into a higher caste system
Hinduism believes in rebirth of souls and rebirth can be avoided only through faith.Every hindu does not like to have rebirth as he is not certain whether he would be born a man or animal in the next birth. Human suffering is the result of his actions in the previous birth.
Hindus believe rebirth happens after death and depending on you deeds in you past live(s) it determines, your class your status your parents if you are a human or animal and so on and so forth
The point of a hindu life, they believe, is to go through many rebirths and death until they find pure peace, which is moksha, when the cycle of birth and rebirth stops.
Rebirth according to his Karmas - good or bad actions
As per the Katha Upanishad, the ancient Hindu scripture, at death, one of two things happens - the body dies but the ME, the Mind and the Ego, that carries its Karma is reborn in a new body. This happens again and again till we attain Moksha or Mukti which is liberation or freedom. The moment we attain Moksha, we are liberated from the cycle of death and rebirth. Then we are united with God. This is the belief of ancient Hinduism known as Sanatana Dharma. Life after death for a man who lives with ignorance is to experience heaven or hell when he comes back to earth in a new body, because we experience both pleasure and pain in this world. However, as said earlier, if we realize the truth of who we are, at death, we are liberated from Karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. When we are liberated and united with God, there is only bliss, and Ananda.
The endless cycle of death and rebirth.
Hindu death rituals basically consisting of burning of the body by the male only.
Moksha, which means emancipation or release, is freedom from Samsara in Hindu, the cycle of death and rebirth. One who achieves Moksha is one who has achieved total self realization and self knowledge. Moksha, along with Dharma, Artha and Kama, represents the four goals of human life.
Is there life after death? (afterlife, rebirth, what happens after you die)
