Thank you again for another wonderful talk! I have been listening to one every day since Passover. With all humble respect, i don't think your comment about the Hindu view on reincarnation was accurate. I think they believe the soul reincarnates over again in form until they reach "nirvana" or similar notion and then are not reborn. So they too believe in spiritual not just physical. If I misunderstood you I apologize. I look forward to listening to your next lecture in this series right after I submit this. For the record, I am Jewish not Hindu but appreciate Eastern philosophy. Following cut & pasted from a Hindu website:
According to Hinduism, a soul reincarnates again and again on earth until it becomes perfect and reunites with it Source. During this process the soul enters into many bodies, assumes many forms and passes through many births and deaths. This concept is summarily described in the following verse of the Bhagavad gita:
"Just as a man discards worn out clothes and puts on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wears new ones." (2.22) Reply

Ethics of the Fathers is a tractate of the Mishna that details the Torah's views on ethics and interpersonal relationships. Enjoy insights, audio classes and stories on these fascinating topics.
