Transmigration(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Also known as metempsychosis, transmigration is a belief in the passage of the soul into another body after death. Many religions have this belief, including Buddhism and Hinduism. Specifics vary, some believing that the rebirth is into either a "lower" or a "higher" form of life, while others believe it is always into a human body. Some also believe the next life is dependent upon the actions within the present life—a karmic rebirth.
