This means that the soul exists in the endless cycle which starts from birth, death and then rebirth. This means that the soul exists forever and it does not die. The embodied self-remains unchanged. As time goes by, the same process keeps recurring but with different individuals.
Expression of time and process as cyclical in Hindu’s life and death
This idea is represented in Hindus whereby they believe that their bodies die but the embodied self is immeasurable, indestructible and also enduring. This means that the embodied self is constant, endurable and primordial and it does not de when the body dies (TenHouten, 2015).
Differences between Hindu western conceptions of time
The idea of time being cyclical is different from the western conception in one way. This is because according to them, if the process of anything say like music has to come back to where it began, then it will be of much quality as compared to the initial. This means that there is a concept of improvements, which is not found in Hindus.
Do cynical have any advantages linear
I don’t think so. This is because in cyclical, revolution is just on the existing thing even though there will be some few changes taking place (TenHouten, 2015). With linear, it encourages creativity and innovation which lead to the creation of new and better things. Linear time also encourages individuals to interact with others from different cultures and learn ideas which they can incorporate into other culture. Generally viewing time and process as linear triggers change as well as the change of lifestyle.
