The theory behind this dualism was that the soul, which was believed to be eternal, was trapped in a mortal body. This dualism in itself may not have been so abhorrent to early Buddhism had it not been that the asceticism required for the soul to be eternally liberated from the body included starving oneself to death sallekhana. It seems that for the early Buddhists the problem with this body-soul dualism and the ascetic practice that went with it meant that liberation was considered possible only after death.
Has any released soul come back and told us this is true? Once the so-called soul is no longer a part of the body it has no mouth to speak to us. In fact, from the Buddhist view point the very idea of an eternal soul came to be seen as encouraging a sense of clinging to selfhood that was detrimental to liberation which was the end of all self-centeredness.
It should be noted that early Buddhism did not oppose religiously oriented suicide altogether. What it did seem to reject was pre-mature suicide. Not only did the Upanishads teach about a permanent soul self or atman, but they also began to identify this atman with the belief in Brahman as the creator God. This non-attachment would serve to alleviate some of the existential pessimism and anxiety caused by the belief in an unsatisfactory duhkha existence.
Yet a seventh source for the Buddhist teaching of no-soul self must surely have been those profoundly blissful meditative states in which the sense of self was so often lost.
This, in turn, would have even reinforced the concept of the world in normal consciousness as primarily one of dissatisfaction duhkha. In fact, that experience of meditative no selfhood would have encouraged the belief that individuality or personal uniqueness was a major source of suffering.
Of course, an experience which entails a sense of loss of self during meditation can just as easily be interpreted as being united with or absorbed into a universal self as it can of experiencing no self at all. In fact, most religions that validate such a mystical experience encourage the former interpretation, especially if the universal self is allowed at least a slight degree of personhood.
Early Buddhism did not allow any degree of that. The early canonical Buddhist view of nirvana sometimes suggests a kind of extinction-like kataleptic state that automatically encourages a metaphysical no-soul self. Early Buddhism, by believing in the non-existence of a soul-self, was paradoxically able to acknowledge that in really there was nothing to be extinguished and, therefore, there was no reason for any anxiety concerning such extinction.
Closely related to a meditative weakening of attachment, an eighth soul denying reason would have been the element of religious humility.
In any ideology where human nature is seen as impure, due either to karma in Indian religions or sin in Christianity the only true solution to liberation, salvation or freedom is through some form of extremely humbling self-denial. For this reason, Buddhism has always preferred to use the more general and ambiguous term rebirth for whatever it is that is transferred from life to life rather than such terms as reincarnation, transmigration, and metempsychosis which commonly connote a soul, or something very much like a soul, continuing on.
To try to explain soulless rebirth Buddhists have used a number of analogies.
A second analogy is that the karmic consciousness of the dying person acts like a stamp that impresses itself on the newly arising consciousness of a fetus and then the stamp dissolves. A third view calls for a temporary intermediate being or consciousness antara-bhava ; in this case the dying consciousness somehow gives rise to an intermediate consciousness that transfers its karma to a newly conceived being before that intermediate consciousness dissolves.
A modern analogy that has been suggested is that of billiard balls.
As imaginative as each of these analogies has been there still are major problems with each of them. In fact, the continuing problem of rebirth without a soul was a major reason for the development of several later schools of Buddhist thought such as the Personalists and the Vijnanavada School, both of which, to uphold the doctrine of karmic continuation, developed their own compromises between no-soul and soul.
Ancestor worship. This is one of the elements that have given rise in a number of cultures to a belief in reincarnation. Anima Latin: Soul. Among classical Latin scholars and philosophers there were different levels of the soul.
One view was that these were the anima materia the soul of non-living mineral being ; the anima herba the soul of plants ; the anima bruta the soul of animals ; the anima humana the mortal human soul ; the anima ratione praedita the rational and immortal human soul ; and anima divina the divine soul or over-soul, also called the anima mundi.
Whatever name is applied to the higher soul it was only this that would reincarnate according to classical thinking. See also Archetypes; Over-soul, Universal; Soul, tripartite.

The term angeloi, from which we get angel, was originally the Greek translation for the Hebrew malak, and although in Genesis , 4 malaks are called the Sons of God Hebrew: Beni ha-Elohim , the term usually meant simply a messenger. In certain modern Western esoteric traditions angeloi, having the moon as their domain, are thought to be responsible for guiding individual souls through to their next rebirth.
Though ideally such angeloi are inherently genderless, they are said to assume the gender opposite of the gender of the soul of which they are guardians. Animals and rebirth, non—Western view. In Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and some other non—Western rebirth systems it is considered quite possible for a present human being to be reborn as an animal regressive transmigration and vice versa progressive transmigration.
Among those few Westerners who accept human to animal rebirth it is often assumed that any belief in the possibility of cross-species rebirth would lead to a great deal more compassion to animals than would otherwise be the case. This in fact, does happen, but only in a minority of situations.
The reason for this minority situation is that since such animal rebirths are considered to be the result of the former human being violating some very strongly held taboos, the animal deserves whatever treatment it receives as part of its karmic punishment and to show it undue compassion might be to interfere with its rightful punishment.
This, of course, could also be a form of blaming the victim for its suffering. In the Buddhist bhavachakra scheme of things, for example, among the reasons for being reborn into the animal S: tiryak realm is excessive sexual desire S: kama or raga: lust. Among most Hindus there is no particular reason for being kind to animals other than to the cow, as a sacred animal, or to some temple monkeys.
While it is true that dropping down to an animal life and violating some taboo are closely associated, there are exceptions. Among these exceptions is obligatory cross-special rebirth. For example, among the Kwakiutl Indians of the American Northwest the human soul must be reborn as an animal for as long as it takes for its former human body to totally decompose.
After this it may be reborn into human form. The belief in animal rebirth, while widespread among Asian people and North American Indians, is rarely, if ever, found among peoples in Africa.

Animals and rebirth, Western view. While many religious traditions accept the idea that a person could be reborn as an animal regressive transmigration most modern Western advocates of rebirth argue against this cross-species idea. A second Western argument against human to animal transmigration is that animals do not understand right from wrong and, therefore, can not be held karmicaly responsible for their actions.
Such responsibility only comes with being able to make moral, hence karmic, decisions. If this is the case, then a spider, for example, could never improve on its karma to ever be reborn as anything other than a spider or its equivalent. In fact, a major reason for supporting animal to human rebirth is to try to solve that issue; but it does not work for most Western reincarnationists because of the moral neutrality of animals.
In fact, as a pig it would not have any questions about rebirth. This means that life as an animal could hardly be perceived as a punishment by that animal; therefore, such cross-species rebirth is a waste of time and energy.
This fourth, as well as the third argument, were major points used by the Church Father Tertullian in his attack against metempsychosis. Animals, domesticated. Rather than suggesting that any kind of animal i. See also Animals and rebirth, Western view; Mind, theory of. Ankh or Crux Ansata. This is a cross with a circle above the horizontal bar.
It was an ancient Egyptian symbol of life and resurrection. While the belief that in a minority of cases some souls might face annihilation selective annihilation is compatible with a belief in reincarnation, a general annihilationism is obviously incompatible with reincarnation.
The issue of annihilationism in the Bible is complicated by the fact that the Old Testament and New Testament, for the most part, deal with the post-mortem condition in very different ways. In the case of the Old Testament, there is very little hope about anything positive that might follow death until the very late composition of that text.
With the New Testament just the opposite is true. However, most people in the Christian world are so accustomed to hearing about the main theme of this work, the bodily resurrection of the dead, that they are unaware that there are also clear annihilationist passages in the New Testament.
Most of these passages imply that on the Day of Judgment God will grant eternal life to the good souls, while the evil souls will experience a second death, in which their souls will face obliteration.
In fact, there have even been some Christian groups that have felt that such annihilation is more in keeping with a loving and just God than is eternal torture in hell. The New Testament passages that suggest such annihilationism are John ; ; ; Romans , —23; 1st Corinthians —54; Galatians ; 1st Timothy , ; and 2nd Timothy Annihilation may or may not be implied in Matthew , ; John ; Romans —23, and James The fact that 1st Timothy —16 states that God alone possesses immortality have been further used to defend annihilationism.
On the other hand, as a main argument against annihilationism, there are innumerable words in Matthew, Mark, and Luke attributed to Jesus that plainly speaks of a continued existence in a suffering hell. There is also a place of post-mortem suffering mentioned in James, 2nd Peter, and the Revelation of John. Annihilationism, Buddhist view. In Buddhism annihilationism has been criticized, much as it has been in Western religion, on a moral basis.
However, annihilationism by itself need not be lacking in moral principles. Many people over the millennia have believed that there is nothing after death, yet they have lived very moral lives.
This may not have been the case for annihilationism in India during early Buddhist times. In India it seems that it was a forgone conclusion that hedonism S: kamasukkha-allikanu-yoga would be associated with an annihilationist view. The pessimistic attitude about life created by the 6th century BCE Indian ascetic movement left for the advocates of annihilationism the choices of stoically accepting worldly suffering, indulging in pain numbing hedonism, or suicide.
Anniversary recall phenomenon. This is said to be the experiencing of a feeling of illness or depression in the present life on the same day or date that some tragic event occurred in a past life.

Antimimon Pneuma. Greek: Counterfeit spirit. In some forms of Gnosticism this was considered to be a spiritual entity that was an intermediary between the body and the soul.
Antinomianism Greek: Opposed to the law. The law in this case originally meant the laws mandated in the Old Testament, especially the Torah. Once the writings of Paul of Tarsus came to be regarded as foundational to the meaning of the coming of Christ, opposition in his letters to keeping all the Law of Moses was interpreted by some extremists as meaning that even the moderate morality supported by that Law was no longer necessary for salvation, and in some cases following such Old Testament morality was counter to salvation.
Even Paul, at times, found it necessary to warn against misinterpreting his teachings and using them to justify antinomian or hedonistic extremes 1st Corinthian — 10; Galatians A number of sects of Gnosticism advocated antinomianism of one kind or another, often based on the belief that the Old Testament laws were those of the demiurge lesser or inferior God as opposed to the greater or real God of Jesus.
Apocatastasis, Apokatastasis. This Greek derived word means re-establishment. In other words, it means universal salvation. This form of universalism was condemned as a heresy by the Church Council in CE Constantinople and even later by most Protestant sects.
Although some Christian pro-universalists, including most Christian reincarnationists, believe that Romans —32, and even Romans —12, may imply universal salvation.
Even if the passages in Romans are ignored, and despite the extreme minority biblical position for universalism, some Christian reincarnationists still adamantly point to 1st Timothy in their argument that such universal salvation is not only valid, but indirectly supports reincarnation as the only logical way such salvation could occur.

Apollonius was a famous Neoplatonic and Neopythagorean philosopher of the 1st century CE, who supported the teaching of reincarnation. According to Life of Apollonius of Tyana, his biography by his students, Apollonius traveled extensively from Spain to India and, in the latter, came into contact with Brahmanic reincarnational views.
In some forms of Theosophy it is believed that the soul of Jesus attained ascended mastership by incarnating as Apollonius.

It combines aspects of Spiritualism, Theosophy, and an assortment of Eastern religious ideas.
Unlike Spiritualism, and more like Theosophy, the Foundation focuses less on contacting the souls of the deceased, and more on making and keeping contact with what it calls the masters of the Great White Brotherhood of Cosmic Light. These masters not only include some of those from standard Theosophy but also the non-apocalyptic UFO beings called Ashtar and Clarion and the angel Moroni.

Dowling — , was stated to have been transcribed from the akashic record by the author via automatic type writing in with the help of a great being called Visel, the goddess of Wisdom. Also, the book also says that as a result of these travels Jesus came to accept and teach the doctrine of reincarnation. Obviously, this Aquarian Jesus is not the divine member of the Christian trinity; instead he is a man who attained the seventh or the highest, degree of initiation into the gnostic mysteries.
Aquinas, Thomas — This prominent Catholic philosopher and theologian, addressed the issue of metempsychosis, which he also called reincorporation, in a variety of his writings, including Super Evangelium S.
Aquinas, like Plato, believed that the human soul had three levels to it. This soul level was shared by all life forms from plants to human beings. The second level was the sensitive one having the faculties of sight, hearing smell, taste, and touch. Only animals and human beings shared this soul level. Finally, there was the rational level, which gave to human beings alone intellect and will. Despite this original Platonic view of the soul, Aquinas was extremely critical of a belief in multiple lives.
Aquinas pointed out that these are very false analogies because when a soul is said to remove itself from the body that body decays, but clothes removed and a ship left behind remain completely whole because they have an existence totally independent of the body or the sailor.

Life would no longer be a test if everyone knew they could keep trying until they finally get it right. Where would the need for belief go? Such subconscious memories of past lives help to better explain the broad range of psychosis diagnosed in the youngest of children than modern medicine currently can. A recent re-analysis of behavioral data collected on identical twins throughout the years can shed light onto this subject.
The current two-factor behavior model does not explain the data collected in identical twin studies. It includes only genetic and environmental factors as determinants of behavior. In other words, all behavior is determined solely by what you physically inherit from your parents and how you were raised. In the special case of identical twins, one of the two factors is thrown out since the physical inheritance is truly identical. Thus the current model says that the differences in behavior between two identical twins are solely due to how they were raised.
Ask any mother of identical twins and you will find that she cannot explain the behavioral differences of the two because she has painstakingly made sure that neither is favored. The statistical patterns seen in twin studies on alcoholism, smoking, criminal behavior, Schizophrenia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder confirms her feeling, and they show that there are other factors at play than currently recognized by the medical profession. One of these factors is that each of us carries a certain amount of spiritual baggage or gifts into our lives.
Evil is clearly caused by our misuse of the Free Will that He gave to us. John we have unlimited support on our road to perfection from the Divine Spiritual World. People are placed in our path to help us, situations are created for us to learn and to repay our many debts; they will need to be repaid to the last farthing.
Physical human suffering is only His way of effecting meaningful spiritual teaching. By taking away the conscious knowledge of God and His Love, God is able to test the true orientation of the spirit. Jesus had to pass this ultimate test Himself, and to prove to Lucifer that He was able to maintain a true Love to His Father regardless of all the tests that Lucifer put Him through during his physical life.

The Devil specializes in granting enormous wealth, and raising the damned to positions of great power.
A man who becomes Emperor of the World, for example, may find his reign troubled by incessant rebellion, and himself subject to constant assassination attempts. Note that Lucifer can grant simple Fame without the need for a contract, if he so chooses. Diabolical Weaknesses: Lucifer is burned by holy water as if it was acid, cannot enter holy ground or touch blessed objects, and is subject to the power of Faith.
He is Vulnerable to Silver, and will not voluntarily touch it. He is susceptible to all Preternatural Effects that target spiritual entities. Limited Power Over Spirits: Lucifer can only target his fellow Devils when he employs the following Preternatural Powers: Must Accept Challenges: The stakes will always be the same. If the mortal wins, Lucifer is defeated, and banished back to Hell.
If Lucifer wins he will also return to Hell, but will take the challenger, body and soul! Unlike Death who will also accept challenges , Lucifer will not wager on things like horse races, or bet on games of chance. He will only engage in contests of pure skill and ability.

In fact, that speaker may have only the vaguest notion of what karma means beyond this simplistic notion. In Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and some other non—Western rebirth systems it is considered quite possible for a present human being to be reborn as an animal regressive transmigration and vice versa progressive transmigration.
The story is short written as a confessional from a Demon dictated to a human if I recall correctly, less than words I think. A number of North American Indians believed in multiple souls; the most common being a belief in dual souls.
