Dharma Dharma means "to hold or support." Part of dharma relates to sacred (holy) duty or moral responsibility. It is the system of rules and values Hindus follow in their everyday life. Another way to think of dharma is as "the right thing to do" in any situation. Hindus believe in a universal dharma that includes values all Hindus accept and practice, such as nonviolence. Hindus also believe they have an individual dharma that they should follow.

People's dharmas are determined by different things, such as personality, age, sex, and inherited social class, or varna. Hinduism teaches that when people follow their dharma, they contribute to the harmony and balance of society and the universe. Dharma Dharma means "to hold or support."

Karma This picture shows the different levels of existence into which people can be reborn, depending on their

past actions, or karma. Karma Hindus believe that karma is the sum of good and bad actions a human soul, or atman, carries with it from life to life. They believe that when people die, the soul leaves the body and is reborn into another body. Hinduism teaches that people's good and bad actions in one life influence their destiny in future lives. In Hinduism, karma determines whether a soul is reborn as a

human or an animal, into a rich family or a poor one, and some of the things a person will experience in each lifetime. For example, Hindus believe that a person who steals in this life may be robbed in a future life, or that someone who harms animals may be reborn as an animal.

Samsara This picture shows a human's progress through life stages, ending with death and then rebirth in a different body. Samsara In Hinduism, samsara is the

continuous cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The process of rebirth is sometimes referred to as reincarnation. The goal of a Hindu's life is to be released from samsara and united with the Supreme God, Brahman. Hindus call this release moksha and it is achieved after a person's soul has lived through many lifetimes. Hindus achieve moksha by following the path of dharma, balancing their karma (both good and bad actions),

worshipping the Gods faithfully, and having a direct and personal experience of God by following certain spiritual practices. Samsara Using the information on the following slide, write the main beliefs in the box Then, make up your own symbol that represents the Hindu belief
