Afterlife Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia
The afterlife is what some people believe happens after death. Different religions teach different things about the afterlife.
Some religions believe in reincarnation (to come back to life as a different person or even animal). These religions include mainly Buddhism and Hinduism.
Hinduism specifically believes that at death the soul leaves the physical body. But the soul does not die. It lives on in a subtle body called the astral body. The astral body exists in a nonphysical dimension called the astral plane. Here the soul continues to have experiences until it is born again in another physical body as a baby.
Most people in the world believe you go to another place after you die, such as heaven or hell. Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Jainism are religions that believe in this. For example, those that follow Christianity believe that if you accept the Christ (Jesus of Nazareth, the son of the Virgin Mary) as your saviour, you will spend eternity in heaven after death; if you do not accept him, you will be separated from him after death.
