For me, like Hindus and some Buddhists, being saved means overcoming desire and self attachment, escaping a weary cycle of death/birth, then attaining Nirvana.  I believe Reincarnation, the rebirth of a soul in a new body, can provide for both life after death and cosmic justice. The latter results as a personís actions in one life produce karmic forces with ethical consequences in future lives.

Alternate Concise Characterization with Wikipedia Entries:

appreciates consequences of karmic forces, values Karma 

accepts possibility of learning from Past Life Regression

appreciates possibility of Rebirth (Buddhist conception)

values Wheel of Life (Buddhist conception)

summary Wikipedia article: Reincarnation
