In Hinduism, reincarnation is one of the steps towards Moksha, which means a kind of release that appears when the circle of death and rebirth is finished. Moksha is one of the four main aims in people’s lives, so every reincarnation takes a person a bit closer to the logical end of life and final accomplishment.

Explanation:

Hinduism is the fourth largest religion in the world, and reincarnation is one of the primary concepts of it. It states that when one physical form is biologically dead, a soul (or the non-physical essence) begins a new life in a different physical form, generating a circle of rebirths and deaths.

In other words, reincarnation is a new chance for life, due to which a soul is supposed to get knowledge and wisdom and, consequently, correct its previous mistakes or atone for them. Therefore, reincarnation cannot be considered as a gift or divine intervention. It is just a step in a circle by going through which not only must a soul educate itself, but it also must get closer to absolute freedom as one of the results of release.

Thus, in Hinduism, death is seen not as a cause for mourning, but rather as a reason for celebration, since the dead are not going to a different world. Conversely, they are thought to head to a new beginning, one step closer to the primary purpose. Due to a similar reason, Hindus are cremated after death, as it is believed that burning the physical form (or body) helps to release a spirit and, therefore, it is easier for it to continue its circle.
