The concept of reincarnation hinges on the idea of an eternal soul or life force that continues into another life after biological death. Although this is a central idea to many religions, some non-religious people find the philosophical concept of reincarnation attractive and choose to prescribe to its belief.
In the spiritual practice of yoga, which is rooted in Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, reincarnation is mentioned in "The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali." The text also outline techniques for learning about past lives. Yoga itself can be a means of moving the practitioner closer to moksha, which will eventually free them from the cycle of reincarnation if they dedicate themselves to this path.
