Gather a more in-depth understanding of the concept of reincarnation, based primarily on a book by Annie Besant.

Reincarnation is one of the primary concepts discussed in the theosophical literature. It not only explains the obvious injustices and inequities found in the physical world, but it also provides us with a rationale for them. As Annie Besant writes: 

Human beings are to reunite the separated aspects of the One, to bring the Spirit to self-consciousness on all planes. Such is their sublime task, for the accomplishment of which reincarnation is to be their tool.
