I am brahma the hindu god that created the world. hindus believe in samsara which is reincarnation. if you have good karma then you will be re born as a wise person but if you have bad karma then you will comeback as a rat.
one bad thing that is looked down on is eating cow meat because cows in hindu are sacred . but you can get good karma by doing a good deed a day.
there is one way of escaping the circle of reincarnation . this is called upanishads that explain how to escape reincarnation.
