Default Reincarnation

A Buddhist and Asian Religious belief, that believes that once you die, you are reincarnated, and everything you do in this life, helps or hinders in the next.

What is your opinion on this? Do you believe in reincarnation?

And the big question;

If you could be reincarnated, what would you come back as?

I'd want to come back as an Impala... A female Impala. Or maybe a cat or a bird. :D

"Hey Reese, what would you come back as, like reincarnation I mean."
"I dunno... What about you?"
"I'd come back as a Giant Flemish Rabbit... Imagine that, 16 pounds of pure bunny." -- Life :D

I hope this is in the right board!

I believe in reincarnation...

I'd come back as a human though. Other animals might be fun for a day or two... but not for long. I'd hate to have to be a pet. ._.

I don't believe in reincarnation, being a Christian and all.
However, if I did believe, I would probably want to be a puppy or a kitten and eventually a dog/cat.

Im a buddhist so if you got questions about it you can ask me...It doesnt matter how you act in a life before your afterlife cause youll just live again with your memories gone. You end up a new thing like eg. a buhddhist to a chritian to a donkey to a elephant to an alien? maybe any life that is decided for you by the god of the underworld. N I want to reincarnate to be the next slash ^_^

I've never heard of people who actually think about what they want to be in a next life. :\

Bingo.

Reincarnation is also a Hindu belief, just wanted to point that out. My opinion? It happens, but like the form of Hinduism I follow says, if you live seven perfect and good lives, then you are worthy to be admitted into heaven.

According to buddhist religion - the better you are in the first life, the better you will be in the next life.

It goes like this.

Good people become lucky wealthy humans or princes
Average people become average farmers and merchants
below average people become poor beggars or unlucky people
Pretty bad people become dogs or cats, or that kind of domesticated animal,
BAD people become bad animals like snake or somthing.

So poeple saying you wanna become dogs or cats... go ahead :P

Yeah, sorry but in Buddhism I do not believe that you can leave the class of Human, you are thinking of Hinduism. You might actually want to look further into the social classes in which each religion has before you make statements, that are false, such as the one above. How would I know? College World History class.

Anyway, I think that Reincarnation is a pretty advanced idea, specifically for the fact that energy never leaves. And if you want to go into the Buddhist belief, while it's a long shot, after Sidharta Gautama (Buddha) died, his energy and enlightenment could have been transferred to numerous other religious figures, such as Jesus Christ. Very interesting belief reincarnation is.[/Yoda]

Even though I am a Christian, I do believe in reincarnation.

Who's to say that reincarnation isn't just part of the process that the Bible is meant to tell? There were many sections of the Bible that should have been in, but the Churches denied them from being accepted into it.

I'll go into more detail later today.

I've always learned that it was like a backpack, and it all had to do with karma. If you do good deeds, good karma will be stored in you backpack. If you do bad deeds, then you would be stuck with bad karma in your backpack. When you die your backpack is weighed by someone and that is what you will be in your next life. Apparently you've gone through like 5000 lives before you area human, starting with some sort of microbe or something.

I'd want to be an elephant. :D (and don't have to be too much of an idiot to get there :D)
