Related Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation which describe reincarnation in terms of its relation to other metaphysical concepts.

1. Karma: The driving force behind reincarnation. Rebirths in a succession of lives allows an individual to experience the universe from a 360° viewpoint so that they can become a fully realized CoWorker with God. These viewpoints include gender, race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, sexual preference, and so on.

Ascension: The end of the cycle of rebirth into the lower worlds of karma and reincarnation where the soul takes up permanent residence in the inner worlds.

Wheel of 84: The wheel of births and deaths caused by reincarnation. The wheels continue to spin - around and around - from one life to the next - until you have learned all that life has to teach you. Each past life spins the threads of future ones. You get off the wheel when you ascend.

Temporal Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation which describe the time aspects of reincarnation: how it operates and progresses over time.

1. Inequality: the apparent inequality in the circumstances of one's life and birth exists in the context of one lifetime. Reincarnation ensures that everyone will have all experiences over the span of many lifetimes and that perfect equality exists inside the full span of an individual's cycles of reincarnation.

Injustice: the apparent injustice in the circumstances of one's life and birth exists in the context of one lifetime. Seeming injustice in one life (what one reaps) is a balancing of seeming injustice in another life (what one has sown).

Incapacity: the apparent incapacity in the circumstances of one's life and birth exists in the context of one lifetime. Incapacity from inception (birth), injury (accident), or illness (disease/disorder) is a cycle of direct (cause-effect) karma and indirect (experience) karma administered over many cycles of reincarnation.

Personal Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation which describe how the principles of reincarnation apply directly to individuals' lives.

1. Personal Style: Reincarnation effects how you manage your energy (introvert-extrovert), your cognition (thinking-feeling), your sensory processing (sensing-intuition), and your organizational style (planning-spontaneous).

Personal Outlook: Reincarnation effects your future outlook style (optimistic-pessimistic), your leadership style (leader-follower), and your sensory processing style (visual/sight-auditory/hearing- kinesthetic/touch).

Personal Approach: Reincarnation effects your style of reasoning (action on what is "feasible and realistic" versus the "vision of what is possible"), your source of reasoning (trusts information more or trusts people more), and your focus of reasoning (must see the big picture or must trust key details).

Personal Preference: Reincarnation effects your preferences as to continuity (preferring sameness or difference), as to nature (preferring conservatism or progressivism), and to action (jumps right in or thinks about it first).

Popular Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation which are catch phrases in the popular imagination: these are often how reincarnation is best known.

1. Reincarnation is making a comeback.

2. What you bring hate into, you will reincarnate into.

3. The world goes around in circles.

4. People coming back to life after quitting time.

5. Reincarnation is deja vu all over again.

6. Reincarnation is cool because you have a chance to come back as a lizard.

Religious Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions which religions use to describe the effects of reincarnation: their belief system about reincarnation.

1. General: the series of rebirths that drive the entire cycle of "samsara" (cause and effect driving reincarnation).

Buddhism: the doctrine that there is no eternal "soul", "spirit", or "self" but only a "stream of consciousness" that links one life with the next life.

Christianity: "John the Baptist... if you are willing to receive it, he is [the Old Testament prophet] Elijah [Elias] who is to come." (Matthew 11:11-14)

Confucianism: to "end one's life for benevolence" and "give one's life for righteousness", improves their cycle of life and rebirth, says Confucius.

Hinduism: the doctrine that an individual may be reborn successively into one of five classes of living beings (god, human, animal, hungry ghost, or denizen of hell) depending on their own actions in past existences.

Islam: "And you were dead, and He brought you back to life. And He shall cause you to die, and shall bring you back to life, and in the end shall gather you unto Himself." (Surat Al-Baqarah - Koran 2:28)

Jainism: the doctrine that all people are caught in a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth that can only be broken by good karma.

Sikhism: the doctrine of reincarnation (samsara) is that life destinies are determined by the accumulation of one’s good and bad deeds (karma).

Taoism: the doctrine that there is always a "continuity of existence without limitation" (birth is not a beginning and death is not an end).

10. Theosophy: the doctrine that individuals are repeatedly are reborn taking up another life using another body and with a different "personality".

Secular Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation current in the mainstream which define reincarnation without using the "reincarnation" word.

1. "Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives." (Henry Ford)

2. "All you do is get the heck out of your body when you die. My gosh, everybody's done it thousands of times. Just because they don't remember, it doesn't mean they haven't done it." (J. D. Salinger)

3. "The soul is not born; it does not die; it was not produced from anyone. Unborn, eternal, it is not slain, though the body is slain." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

4. "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body." (Giordano Bruno)

5. "No honest theologian therefore can deny that his acceptance of Jesus as Christ logically binds every Christian to a belief in reincarnation - in the Elias case (who was later John the Baptist) at least." (Robert Graves)

Scientific Definitions of Reincarnation
These are definitions of reincarnation current in the scientific community which support the concept of reincarnation.

1. Matter cannot be created or destroyed, it may be rearranged in space and changed into different types of particles. (Conservation of Matter)

2. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed: it can only be transformed from one state to another. (Conservation of Energy)
