P3 RME – Hinduism

You have been learning about Hinduism with Miss Wilson. An important belief from Hinduism is the belief in karma. This means that good actions are rewarded and bad ones are punished. Hindus believe in the cycle of karma and reincarnation. When someone dies, they could be reborn as another human (if they have good karma), or as an animal, bug, or even a plant (if they have bad karma).

This video explains a little bit about the Hindu belief of karma and reincarnation: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02n5v2q

In the video from 1:06 to 1:55, we can see an illustration of a karma cycle. Can you make your own karma cycle using the template (or you can draw your own)? Remember to draw the different stages of life, eg. baby, child, teenager, adult. You will need to decide how to end your cycle!

Bad karma:  The cycle could end with being reborn as an animal or bug – you can decide what someone with bad karma could be reborn as.

Good karma: The cycle could end with being reborn as another human.
