A concise summary of reincarntion and how it has evolved in eastern religions. It is clear to me that I prefer the Hindu rather than the Buddhist versions.

But then I have evolved my own beliefs. It seems to me that heaven has work to do- to make humanity on earth succeed- and whether you get to stay there or not depends more on whether your talents will be useful to the beings that populate heaven than some abstract karmic law. Physics, and Buddhists work by abstract law. But I suspect that it is much more personal than that. If you have what they want, they will take you. It's just like applying for a job on earth.

Another path is where you volunteer to be reborn even though you may have talents useful to heaven. It's not good or bad karma; it's what you can do for humanity, which includes them, for that is where they came from.So they are concerned with the plight of humanity.


Happy Holy Days,

Richard
