Why do Hindus believe in Reincarnation?

I am doing an essay for RE (please see my other questions) and was wandering what the answer is to this question?
I know that they believe that they will keep being reincarnated until they ‘become one with Brahma’, but why?
Thanks in advance x


  1. LOL … Fireball … I will say it again … I love you ….
    Fireball calling Hindu’s a cult … if that ain’t the pot calling the kettle black …ROFL

  2. “ I died as a mineral and became a plant,
    I died as plant and rose to animal,
    I died as animal and I was Man.
    Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
    Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar
    With angels bless’d; but even from angelhood
    I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
    When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
    I shall become what no mind e’er conceived.
    Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence
    Proclaims in organ tones,
    To Him we shall return.

    chek for rumi
    regarding hindus
    its evolution, form animal to human to divine
    so now inbetween the human and divine you are given a chance to move towards divininty however there is animal instints as well
    so in this life if you could refine your animal instints you will be moving towards divinity or else will fall down to animal species
    so its a continues process until you become divine

  3. well there books say that after you die you will pass into life after, and it just so happens that the hindu scholars assumed that to mean being born again. but i think it could also mean heaven/hell.

  4. A theory to support it is that many humans are “naturals” at things, even though it should take practice, such as playing an instrument on the first time. They think this is proof they had a “previous” life.

  5. Because we’re held down to the wheel of Samsara by our desires. In Hinduism, we cannot escape the cycle of death and rebirth until we come to understand that the gunas that feed our desires are unimportant, impermanent, and the fuel that continues the cycle. According to Krishna, only those who act for the sake of action, without regard to consequences, without regard to desire, and who offer up every action as a form of worship realize that they *already* have the divine present in Atman (the Self). In Hinduism, there really is no purpose left in life once one comes to this realization.

  6. For the same reasons Jews believe in reincarnation and early Christians believed in reincarnation: because it’s true, and it’s one of the few things organized religions ever got right (sort of). All religions are manmade, but reincarnation is above all the manmade stuff. It’s simply a law of nature which is often erroneously associated with eastern dogma.

  7. So what’s your opinion ? If you go to the paradise then upto how much you will there , Did you ever ask this question to yourself ? It means after here on earth you start living there.It is another planet for your living?
    You can never be free unless you dissolve like a metal into the alloy and lose your identity.We must have to extinct ourself to get free from chains of lives and deaths.Otherwise you will go on living forever in paradise.
    If God is equal to all , Then why he is doing partiality.
    One is millionaire industrialist business man.And the other is
    beggar on the road side foot path.Why some borned as paralyzed, they just entered the world , they have done nothing wrong against anyone nor they were accidented as they have just borned.
    What is destiny ? And What Factor Decides Destiny ?
    Destiny is chosen by lucky draw ?Is our life ups and down are so easily decided in heaven before sending us to earth.Here Comes Karma Law Of Hinduism.One Has To Pay For His Sins And Deeds.
