What is the resettlement of souls?
Resettlement of souls (or metempsikhoz-the doctrine about resettlement of souls) is one of forms of ideas of a next world.
Essence of the doctrine about resettlement of souls comes down to the fact that soul of the person leading a pious life after death passes into the best, more highest beings and people.
For example, the sinner's soul — in a being low, even in animals and plants. In religions of ancient India and Egypt resettlement of souls was used for justification of a class and exclusive slaveholding order. This belief found
bright expression in the northern Buddhism, Lamaism widespread in Tibet, Mongolia and other countries. Here it promotes allocation of the parasitizing elements of lamaistsky hieratic priesthood and their domination.
