In Hinduism, the holy book Rigveda, the oldest extant Indo-Aryan text, numerous references are made to rebirths,[citation needed] although it portrays reincarnation as "redeaths" (punarmrtyu).[citation needed] One verse reads "Each death repeats the death of the primordial man (purusa), which was also the first sacrifice" (RV 10:90).[24] Another excerpt from the Rig Veda states (Book 10 Part 02, Hymn XVI):

Rebirth is not mentioned in the Vedas:

The important point worth noting is that the doctrine of rebirth is not postulated, propounded nor even mentioned anywhere in what are considered to be the most authentic Hindu scriptures i.e. the Vedas. The Vedas make no mention of the entire concept of transmigration of souls.

I do not depend upon something which some people wrote (and rewote) long back in history and keep reciting it like a parrot. I have, actually, met such people who remembered their past life
