Samsāra

The Hinduism of the the Samhitas looked on the material world as understandable and controllable. It was in the material world that the gods gave to humans and the gods could be controlled through hymns, prayers, rituals, and sacrifices. But the Hindus began to think of the world as illusion. Reality was rather to be sought in the unchanging and unitary principle of the universe. The material world, on the other hand, was a place fragmented and constantly changing. This changing aspect of the universe came to be called samsara.

The Hindus long before this had integrated the concept of reincarnation into their religion. Reincarnation is speculate about "death and rebirth" or a death in the afterlife that returns one to life. This concept in which all action is seen as the result of previous action and the cause of future action, were produced as the meaning of samsara as "reincarnation based on past actions." Karma not only determined in what form or what caste one was reborn into, it also made reincarnation necessary. All your actions must produce some action in the future; the only way this can happen for all your actions is if you have lives in the future.
