I feel like so often people overlook all of the different facets of Donna that make her such a brilliant character. She constantly shows her compassion, her morality, her kind-heartedness. The fact that she made friends with Stephanie over a shared ex-boyfriend goes against all of the typical love triangle nonsense (yay, positive female friendship), and is just another insight showing how wonderful she is. And there’s her wit. I love the “knock knock” moment not just because it’s hilarious, but also because it’s in response to Sam being a jerk. She just handles it. And the amusing exchange with Josh about a woman’s sexual desire reads as a casual statement of sex positivity, as well as adorable flirting. But there’s also her determination and ambition. Her arc is all about empowerment. What could be greater?
I just really love Donna Moss.
Reincarnation – known as Punarjanma – it is one of the core beliefs of Hinduism that is generally accepted by many of its practitioners.
Reincarnation is the natural process of birth, death and rebirth. Hindus believe that the Jiva or Atman (soul) is intrinsically pure. However, because of the layers of I-ness and My-ness, the jiva goes through transmigration in the cycle of births and deaths. Death destroys the physical body, but not the jiva. The jiva is eternal. It takes on another bodywith respect to its karmas. Every karma produces a result which must be experienced either in this or some future life. As long as the jiva is enveloped in ignorance, it remains attached to material desires and subject to the cycles of births and deaths (Samsara).
TL; DR if you give up material things and your ignorance, you escape the cycle of reincarnation. Until then, you will be reborn as something better or worse depending on how close you were.
Why do Hindu’s believe in reincarnation?
