Reincarnation, sometimes called rebirth or transmigration, in many cultures, is the belief that once someone or something dies, an aspect of that being (mostly thought to be the soul) is reborn in a different body or form. The word, derived from Latin, literally means "entering the flesh again." Some of those cultures who believe in reincarnation include Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism as well as a few isolated lesser known cultures and faiths.
