What Do Sikhs Believe About the Afterlife?
Transmigration is a common theme in Sikhism. The soul travels through countless lifetimes in a perpetual cycle of birth and death. Each lifetime the soul is subject to the influences of past deeds, and is cast into existences within various realms of consciousness and planes of awareness. In Sikhism the concept of salvation and immortality is enlightenment and liberation from the effects ego so that transmigration ceases and one merges with the divine.
