In World Religions & Beliefs concepts of the Afterlife
are perplexing and shrouded in mystery
Faith traditions have beliefs that range
from bodily resurrection, the survival of the soul,
merging of consciousness, heaven and hell,
reincarnation to animals, insects, plants, rocks etc.;
Moksha, or salvation in Hinduism,
Enlightenment, and Nirvana in Buddhism
The Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
believe in the resurrection, judgment, heaven and hell;
while Indian religions – Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism
practice karma (good or bad actions),
some form of rebirth, or transmigration
based on the Samara doctrine of the cycle of life and death
But which path should an interfaith believer follow?
Myths and teachings about salvation must be put into context.
It makes no sense to follow blindly a faith tradition.
A believer’s approach calls for study, prayer, and intuition.
So, let your basis of finding a path for these answers
be through the pursuit of religious literacy
“God, give us the wisdom and insight to understand the tenets of the Afterlife. Help us to grapple with these concepts in order to develop a rightful path.”
