The concept of Reincarnation and Karma in Hinduism
As per Hinduism, when a person is born or dead, it's not a one- time event. Every life on earth has multiple appearances (birth) before they finally leave from their cycle of birth. A person who has taken birth as a human can take birth as an animal, a bird or any living thing in the next birth. Hinduism believes in the concept of rebirth or reincarnation.
 
This concept is summarily described in the following verses of Bhagavad Gita:
 
"Just as a man discards worn out clothes and put on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wear new ones"
 
According to Hinduism, a person or living thing has to play different roles. By transferring of the soul to different bodies to attain perfection and becomes one with the divine, one can also say the body is a prison, and soul is held in it as the prisoner for the sins of physical self.
Another word we should know is Samsara, Hindus call it the chain of life and death and rebirth in a new physical form.
 
 
Law of Karma
 
The word karma Karma are the good or bad deeds one performs in his life, according to which he/she receivesis derived from Sanskrit, which means "actions" or "deeds". Karma means intentional actions of individuals that will affect person's life and next birth. Karma is a law of the action and reaction, the soul in the body has to suffer each and every action taken by the body. The soul reaps the effects of its own actions. If we are responsible for others sufferings, then we also have to suffer. What goes around comes around. If any person does good things like helping others, give love and make others happy, and then that person is doing well for his future and next birth. If you plant a rose, you can pluck roses, similarly, if you plant cactus, then all you pluck are thorns. 
 
Freedom from rebirth
 
When the soul is gone through all the experiences of life in the physical world, each time the soul takes on a new body, and it get closer to becoming perfect. After many rebirths, soul follows the law of karma and believes in good actions throughout its reincarnation. Then there is no need of physical incarnation, the soul itself gets closer to Moksha (salvation). After each successful life cycle, the soul gets closer to God. According to Hinduism, every soul is guided by the Karma to an ultimate goal of Moksha. Every person should truly follow the path of Hinduism and preach its teaching in the day to day life. Hinduism is not just a religion, it is a way of life, and this makes it the greatest religion in the world with maximum followers.
