What do Hindus believe about Life after Death ?

  • http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/death-in-hinduism/3626.html
  • “Just as a person casts off worn-out garments and puts on others that are new, even so does the embodied soul cast off worn-out bodies and takes on others that are new.”
  • (Bhagavad Gita 2,13).

Reincarnation: arguments against

  • The arguments against dualism given by Ryle apply as easily to reincarnation as they do to the immortality of the soul – the mind should not be seen as non-physical.
  • Evidence for yoga memory may be flimsy. Stephen Davies argues that contact between families may allow children to account for a remembered ‘past life’ which they have not really experienced. He asks whether some cases of yoga memory are actually deliberate fraud.
  • Although Hindu philosophy is very ancient, that does not make it right. Incorrect beliefs may be well established.
  • What is Karma?
  • People will be rewarded and punished according to their actions.
  • The Law of Karma is about Cause and Effect

  • This was never my intention and for this I apologise.
  • Did Hoddle deserve the sack?
