  • Central to Hinduism is the belief in
    reincarnation. Hindus believe that after a person
    dies, they will be re-born as some other creature
    or thing.
  • What you are re-born as depends on your Karma
    or the deeds you did in your previous life.
  • If you did good deeds, you will reborn into a
    higher, better life. If you had bad Karma, you
    may be re-born as an insect or even a tree.

Why do many Hindus wear a dot near the middle of
their forehead?
It represents a divine sight and shows that one
is a Hindu.

    the pain and misery of life. He decided from
    then on that he needed to find a way of living
    that would allow people to find peace in life.

    life, following different philosophies. Finally
    he came up with his own way, which is now called

  • The Laughing Buddha Have you ever seen a ceramic
    or carved representation (a statue) of the
    Buddha, perhaps in a Chinese restaurant, or for
    sale in a store, or in your home or garden?

    we need to have a loving heart. A big heart gives
    you tolerance. It helps you to greet each day
