  On death and beyond

Karma and reincarnation are central ideas many members of the Theosophical Societies believe in. They have traditionally been part of eastern philosophy, though these thoughts are becoming more common in the west. Above is material from theosophical writers, Buddhist writers and Jiddu Krishnamurti. In a philosophy of life the following questions become essential: Is there something permanent in our spirit? Do our actions and thoughts have consequences that return to us? What is the place of thought in our lives? In eastern philosophy such questions are seen as central to life and living, though finding answers is perhaps not as important as it is to ask questions.
