What religions believe in rebirth/reincarnation?

I know that the Hindu religion does, who else?


  1. Most Buddhist branches believe in some form of reincarnation. We don’t stop reincarnating until we’re able to reach nirvana or a state of inner peace in our lifetimes. Some might even call it heaven.

  2. Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, (buddhism I think but not too sure).
    There may well be others.
    edit to Bell Sound:
    who cares? Well the asker for one (obviously), anyone who thinks this question might come up on a RS/RE test or exam and needs the grades. A person looking for a career as a minister of religion, a person writing a book either a factual text book on religion or a fiction writer looking to keep their plot line believable, a fact checker for a newspaper, get the point?

  3. Hinduism
    The persian muslim saint Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī said in one of his poem:
    I died from minerality and became vegetable;
    And From vegetativeness I died and became animal.
    I died from animality and became man.
    Then why fear disappearance through death?
    Next time I shall die
    Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels;
    After that, soaring higher than angels –
    What you cannot imagine,
    I shall be that.
