Death and the Afterlife in Hinduism


see the attached paper


Immortality of the soul is one of the longest and enduring metaphysical arguments in religious and philosophical realms. In Phaedo, Plato argues that the soul exists before and continues to exist after life, and he gives a number of theoretical supports for his argument. However, his theoretical supports are criticized by other philosophers like Hume, who believes that the soul and the body both desiccate after death (63). The concept of dualism states that the human beings are made up of the physical body and the soul, with the two coexisting together. One of the mainstream religions in the world, Hinduism, believes in the concept of dualism supporting the idea of immortality of the soul where after death the soul is reincarnated in another form.
