I believe that every person is born with a soul condemned to suffer, but by behaving properly one’s soul can be “saved”.   (Note: Christians, Muslims, and others believe that a moralistic God’s favorable judgment can “save” someone. Upon death these souls spend a blissful eternity with God or Allah in heaven or paradise. Those souls with unpardonable sins spend an eternity in hell. For Hindus and some Buddhists, being saved means overcoming desire / self attachment, escaping a weary cycle of death / birth, then Nirvana. Reincarnation, which many think of as the rebirth of a soul in a new body, can provide for both life after death and cosmic justice. The latter results as a person’s actions in one life produce karmic forces with ethical consequences in future lives.)
