The Hindu philosophy teaches its supporters that every individual has a unique soul—’Jeeva.’ A soul is bound to take rebirth in humankind or Sansar, which signifies a cycle of death and rebirth in the mundane world. In Hinduism, people believe that each soul departs through seven life cycles, after which the soul automatically attains liberation.
- In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna mentioned that death is not the ultimate; it is not the end of life because the human body dies, but the soul does not.
- Krishna also said that the entire world keeps rambling on an endless voyage around the circle of rebirth and reincarnation.
- Regardless, Hindu Dharma believers think that a person will surely reincarnate if the individual meets a premature death and has unfulfilled longings.
- It is also conveyed in the Bhagavad Gita that an individual soul is immortal and everlasting.
- According to the Bhagavad Gita, a person can decide what they want to become in the next life.
- However, the soul has to transit from one body to another in the eternal cycle of birth and death until the soul attains Moksha.
