Hinduism and reincarnation, is it a fair concept?

Christianity, Judaism end Islam sound like harsh faiths, with a “black and white” mentality.

According to Hinduism, a soul reincarnates again and again on earth until it becomes perfect and reunites with the source (God).

Verses from the Bhagavad Gita:
“Just as a man discards worn out clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wears new ones” (2:22)

Should I convert to Hinduism? Their God (Gods) seems more gentle and fair.

Hinduism is not a religion. It is living style. It has history of over 10,000 years. There is no specific founder for it. You don’t have to follow hindu rituals to be a hindu. even , if your parents are christians or jews or muslims, you can still be a hindu. Have tolerance and universal acceptance. Read vedas and upanishads. You’ll get to know all science in those books itself, which are being discovered by modern day scientists. Also, read Bhagavadgeeta.

[Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) said: O People, Listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat(Charity). Perform Hajj if you can afford to. All mankind is from Adam and Eve, AN ARAB HAS NO SUPERIORITY OVER A NON-ARAB NOR A NON-ARAB HAS ANY SUPERIORITY OVER AN ARAB; ALSO A WHITE HAS NO SUPERIORITY OVER A BLACK, NOR A BLACK HAS ANY SUPERIORITY OVER A WHITE – except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims… Read more »

My friend, what you do is your Right. It’s a free Country. But, even though I belong to the Sanathana Dharma, myself, I would ask you to be more open and to correct some of the misconceptions you have. True, in comparison, the Desert Messianic Faiths lack a lot of many things. There is a limited perspective there. It’s like three blind men who have come upon an elephant and each sees the elephant from his own perspective. The first sees a very big Hose Pipe, because he’s holding the trunk; while the second sees a thick Pillar since he’s… Read more »

As a Hindu myself, let me warn you that a bunch of misinformed and ignorant bigots from other religions will jump all over you and condemn you for your beliefs. You can already see that by reading some of these answers. If anything, Hinduism is built not to condemn others or convert, so you don’t find Hindus proselytizing. Hinduism is about accepting and respecting others despite their beliefs. All in all, you should really just do what you feel makes you a better person, and don’t listen to bigots. Note, a good amount of people, mostly in the West, think… Read more »

Go where your faith leads you. Hindu concepts have not been proven to be more correct or false than any other creed.

False prophets. The bible warns this. Jesus Christ offers internal life in heaven with the father. Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life.

All false religion avoids judgment one way or another. Hinduism is the most brash; it’s a false human-made belief which struggles to avoid responsibility for our fallen nature

I’m a Hindu, and personally the ideas of karma and reincarnation are very calming. Of course, I can’t tell you what religion to be. You should find a religion that appeals to you. Hinduism or Christianity, Islam or Judaism. Whichever one gives you the most inner peace. A few more things about my religion: One of the main things Hinduism teaches is tolerance. Tolerance of people of all skin color and race. No matter what. We NEVER preach, or insist that our religion is the right one or the best one. In my personal belief, every person has the afterlife… Read more »

If you believe in fairy tales yes you should. The whole concept of reincarnation is stupid.
*wonders if someone can be reincarnated into a toilet seat when they die

You’re right…re-living this hell over and over until you get it “right” is so much better only living it once.
