Authored by William Walker Atkinson
Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, begins life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life's actions. This doctrine is a central tenet of several religions including Buddhism and Hinduism. It is also a common belief of various ancient and modern religions such as Spiritism, Theosophy, and Eckankar and is found in many tribal societies around the world.
In this classic work on reincarnation by William Walker Atkinson, the author explores the subject from a diverse range of perspectives that are as relevant today as when they were written:
