The apparent variability in the forms of reincarnation beliefs and associated practices across cultures is widely documented in the anthropological literature. Yet when a comparative perspective is adopted, some aspects appear to be remarkably similar. The aim of this research is to supplement cultural theories by taking account of what is known about individual-level psychology. In doing so, a number of hypotheses are generated and tested, first among participants in the UK and then in India with members of the Jain community.

This talk is part of the Psychology and Religion Research Group (PRRG) series.
