The question of life after death has always agitated the minds of people belonging to all religions and all ages alike. 

There is also the atheistic view which totally denies the possibility of life after death. The religions which believe in life after death can be divided into two categories.
1. Those which believe in the reincarnation of the soul of a dead person into a new human or animal form of existence.
2. Those which believe in an otherworldly state of existence after death.
