We are immortal souls living and growing in the great school of earthly experience in which we have lived many lives.

Shaivite Hinduism

Śaivism proclaims:God Śiva is Love, both immanent and transcendent, both the creator and the creation.

Reincarnation, punarjanma, is the natural process of birth, death and rebirth.At death, we leave the body through the crown chakra, entering the clear white light and beyond in quest of videhamukti.
