Reincarnation implies that the person remains essentially the same, while occupying a new body. Every suffering or pleasure that a soul may experience in its present life is due to the choices it has made in the past. The soul may be human, animal, or plant, depending on the moral quality of the previous life. The purpose of reincarnation is to cultivate the soul and acquire wisdom to get out of the cycle of worldly birth and death.
