4297Re: Western tradition of reincarnation?
- Apr 16, 2007** Today's Orthodox Jews are also very receptive to the idea
reincarnation, going back mellenium. Their holy prayer book, the
siddurim, mentions reincarnation (gilgul) in relation to the atonement
of one's sins that a person may have committed in a previous life
time. The literal meaning of "gilgul" is reincarnation. Also, Hasidic
Jews believe that reincarnation into animal forms occurs with people
who live through their animal instincts during their life as a human.
