Will I be a cat,alligator or dog in my next life?
I am totally fascinated with animals especially cats, alligators and dogs. What does Hinduism say about cats, alligators and dogs? I heard that when you die whatever you are thinking about at the time of death will decide your next life. Thanks.

I know that I should keep quiet here, but how does this reincarnation work for non believers of it?

Reincarnation will happen to everyone whether or not they believe in it. When your material body dies your soul goes into a new body. It can be an animal body, an insect body or a human body etc etc etc. However, If you are a greatly advanced devotee of Lord Krishna then you can go back to Godhead(spiritual world) and then you don't have to reincarnate anymore. How you act in this life determines your next life. For example, if I decide to kill a bunch of people I may get a body of a cockroach in my next life. However, if I try to become Krishna Conscious in this life I may luck out and take another human birth in my next life.

My take on it:
Reincarnation = the Conservation of Energy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservation_of_energy

[sarcasm]But that is a superficial answer[/sarcasm] that won't be accepted by many people. The person would become a cockroach, from your, blackcat99, example, by way of that called Karma; at least karma as people are told what it means. The thing is, Karma is not some Golden Rule instituted by an over-arching deity who is full of Observation and Judgment. Karma literally means work; i.e., in the old Sanskrit. Karma can be likened to the concept of inertia (I'm sure I've brought this up elsewhere on this forum). It is the weight of one's actions--the impact if you will--which propels or stills a person. How much of a stir did you make? That amount depends on and is defined by your Karma. The Karma of Pythagoras, Swinburne, Laotze, etc., still continues to affect the world. That is Karma, NOT some system of Divine Retribution.

I think I'll come back as a cockroach (free shot fellas) cos then I'll survive all of these armageddon wars and things.................woohoo........ and god wouldn't let cockroaches be killed on the new earth, so we would take the place over before the 144,000 had finished queuing up for the toilets.........YESSSSSSSSSS. Cockrule Tongue

If cockroaches can survive nuclear wars, what the hell do they put in insect spray...........scareeeeeeee.

Oh, the lyrics to the second half of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord," or was it the Chiffon's "He's So Fine"? Either way, very cool. Smile
