I’m often asked if I believe in reincarnation, and I’ve always thought that to be an incredible question. However, I’ve never been one to shy away when it comes to learning the truth about ourselves, and that is that it is possible for us all to be on the path of enlightenment.
If we were to make a list of the world’s religions, the ones with a great deal of scientific evidence would have to be in the top 5. The other two would be Buddhism and Hinduism. Buddhism, with all its many teachings about reincarnation, is one of the most popular religions on planet earth. Even Hinduism, the religion of the majority of Hindus, has been around for many millennia.
Hinduism is also the most ancient religion in this list, and in fact has been around for a very, very long time. Hinduism, which is the religion of the Hindus, is one of the oldest of the world’s major religions, with a long history going back to the 3rd Century BC. It is also one of the most popular religions in the world. There are around 15 million Hindus around the world.
Hinduism is a religion with a lot of similarities to Judaism. It is a system of belief in which the goal is to live a moral life. It requires that we follow a set of moral and ethical principles, and that we treat people as individuals, rather than as members of the group (of the group of the group of the group). Hinduism also requires a belief in reincarnation – reincarnation literally means reincarnate.
Some people think that Hinduism is a religion of heaven and hell. Others think that it’s a religion of reincarnation. Still others think that it’s a religion of life and death. It’s a religion that is very much concerned with the way you interact with your fellow human beings. It’s a belief system in which no one is ever truly alone or unloved, but rather we are all made in the image of the divine.
You see, Hinduism says that reincarnation is actually a part of the Hindu’s “knowledge of the Self”. The Self is the individual being who is believed to be the creator of the world.
Hindus believe that our world is the image of our Creator. As such, reincarnation is the pathway to the spiritual journey. Because reincarnation is often associated with the death of your earthly body, you are required to undergo an entire cycle of rebirths. Hindus believe that the ultimate goal is to return to your original body, but in a sense, the next step is to become your original body.
As the Hindu’s understand it, the Self is the ultimate reality and the ultimate goal. However, if you live your life according to the teachings of the Hindu religion, you will eventually experience that ultimate goal and you will be able to return to that original body.
The Hindu tradition of reincarnation believes that rebirth is a choice. Every Hindu is born into a family of five (and there are many more depending on their caste/class/nation). The five families all go through a similar process of learning and growing, all the way up to the highest caste. The five families are each marked by their own caste marks on their foreheads. For example, the highest caste is called Brahmin, and the lowest is Kshatriyas.
This is the story of the five families, and it’s a story that each family’s head tells to the world. But the story is really about the families themselves, and the head of each family has a different experience with life. The head of the Brahmin family is the most unhappy and the most at ease with death. But after his wife dies he decides that he is going to live with those who are most like him, so he becomes a Brahmin.
