Information


Samsara is the endless cycle of death and rebirth, a central tenet of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. It can literally refer to the earth, though there are possibly other realms in which one can be reborn, other than earth. In Samsara, beings are reborn over and over again, and family they are born to, and their life circumstances are governed by their karma, or the person's past thoughts, words, and actions. Good karma creates better life circumstances, while bad karma creates negative circumstances for one's self. While one can have a good experience in samsara, the ultimate goal, according to the aforementioned belief systems is total liberation, called moksha, from the endless cycle altogether.
