philosophy religon death

Eventually we all die / hindu believe in reincarnation of the soul. death viewed as natural aspect of lief. they beliave the reborn into the future based on thier thoughts and actions.

Muslim believe that present life is a trail in prepration for next realm of existence.

Budisim. after death our soul seek ottachment. Where they will born is the result of positive and negative actions. karma.

Human beings are constituted from both the material (physical) or gaetha and spiritual or mainyu existences. The body is gaetha and the various spiritual components are mainyu. 

When a person dies, it is the body that dies and the spiritual components continue to exist in the spiritual existence. 

The fate of the three primary spiritual components, the soul, fravashi and spirit, depend on the kind of life a person has led from the age of reason, fifteen years of age (see navjote). This includes the person's store of thoughts, words and deeds, how well the person has kept her or his word, the person's conscience and sense of justice. 

Zoroastrians take comfort in the faith that if they have led a life as true Zoroastrians, that is, if they have led a life of honest work, goodness, and helfulness to others, they can approach death with no fear. The Zoroastrians of Yazd, Iran, hold that since they know the fate of the soul and spirit after death, there is no mourning when a loved one dies - only celebration. Their memorial stones state the date of a person's passing from this existence to the next, as the date of that person's second birth. 

When all is said and done, the soul receives in the afterlife what it has given out in this life. In other words, the soul creates its heaven or hell, both of which are a state of spiritual existence and not places. 

Regardless of its fate, a soul does not perish after death. A soul will continue to exist as long as creation and time exists (also see Zoroastrian concepts of time). The state in which the soul resides also continues until the end of time. At the end of time all souls will return to God after a cleansing. 

Souls of the ashavan - individuals who have led their lives according to the precepts of asha (goodness in short) - unite with the fravashi and spirit to form a united fravashi. A united fravashi has the ability to become a guardian angel. 

Zoroastrianism suggests the goal of one's life is to achieve ushta - abiding peace and happiness - humanity at peace with itself and an individual at peace with oneself.

Judaism - Views on Death

Judaism has stressed the natural fact of death and its role in giving life meaning. The fear of death, concern about the fate of our own soul and those of our loved ones, ethical concerns that some people die unfairly, all these and many other issues are discussed in Jewish literature. Since God is seen as ultimately just, the seeming injustice on Earth has propelled many traditional Jewish thinkers into seeing the afterlife as a way to reflect the ultimate justice of human existence.

Traditional thinkers considered how individuals would be rewarded or punished after their deaths. There are a few rare descriptions of life after death. Traditionalists gave the name Gehenna to the place where souls were punished. Many Jewish thinkers noted that since, essentially, God is filled with mercy and love, punishment is not to be considered to be eternal. There are, similarly, many varying conceptions of paradise, such as that paradise is the place where we finally understand the true concept of God. It is also possible that there is no separate Heaven and Hell, only lesser or greater distance from God after death.

Judaism does not believe people who are Gentiles will automatically go to Hell or that Jews will automatically go to Heaven on their basis of their belonging to the faith. Rather, individual ethical behavior is what is most important.
