believe that after we die, we are reborn. We continue to be

bad things we get punished. The Law of Karma says that this

reach God by doing good deeds. Hindus are free to choose the way
or ways they want to use to reach God. As we are all different and
have different characters and abilities we choose different ways
to reach God.
