Jainism and the concept of death

Jainism is an ancient Indian religion with a complex and nuanced view of death. In Jainism, death is seen as a natural part of the life cycle, and the soul is believed to be reborn into a new body after death.

However, Jains also believe that it is possible to achieve liberation from the cycle of rebirth and that death can be a time of great spiritual opportunity.
