SAMSARA - the Hindu cycle of rebirth and reincarnation


Hindus believe in Samsara, a continuous cycle in which the soul is reborn over and over again according to the law of Karma. At death, many Hindu’s believe the atman (soul) is reincarnated into a new physical body which can be a human or non-human form (an animal or divine being). Hindus are trying to achieve Moksha - being one with god. When they achieve Moksha (by living a good life and building good karma), their atman (soul) is free from the material world to be in the world of spiritual enlightenment. 


Year 6 learned about this cycle and represented it in a diagram to show their understanding.
