According to Yoga, a soul reincarnates again and again on earth until it fully recognizes it’s inner Divinity and completely reunites with it’s Source. The concept of reincarnation is summarized in the Bhagavad Gita this way: “"Just as a man discards worn out clothes and puts on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wears new ones." (2.22) Sivya Subramuniyaswami, author and founder of The Himalayan Academy in Hawaii, offers this explanation of reincarnation: “The soul, in its intelligence, searches for its Self, slowly ascending the path that leads to enlightenment and liberation. It is an arduous, delightful journey through the cycles of birth, death and rebirth culminating in Self Realization, the direct and personal spiritual experience of God, of the Self, of Truth.”
