What can you see happening in this picture ?
Karma and Re-incarnation
Re-incarnation: At
death, only the body dies.
The soul (atman) migrates
into a new body. It could be
human.. or animal…
If the soul is immortal (lives forever)
what can happen to you after you die?
Which would you prefer and why ?
• To define Karma and Moksha
• To explain re-incarnation
• To evaluate if reincarnation is a good
theory.
1. Write out the definition of
reincarnation.
2. Explain why you would/ would
not like to be reincarnated.
What your soul will be born into
depends on your ACTIONS
(=Karma) in this life…
Good karma, pays off with a
happier life in the future.
Bad karma binds the soul
(atman) to the cycle of rebirth,
leading to misfortune in this life
and poor conditions in the next.
Paying off all your karma, by
continuous good actions, can free
you from rebirth. This is called
Moksha.
Karma is like a law of the
universe. There is no “judge” or
God deciding what happens to
you. You can’t avoid your karma.
1.
2.
Explain what karma is.
Give an example of good
karma and bad karma.
3. Why should bad karma be
avoided ?
4. How can you avoid being
reborn in Hinduism?
***how could an animal
accumulate good karma, to get
rebirth as a human ?
BAD KARMA
Draw a snake with the tail going down. Write in the
name of the sin in the box where the snake head is.
(Give your longest snakes by the worst sins!)

come closer to God by the paths of
knowledge, devotion, meditation,
good works. Eg read holy books
