Think of it as transmigration (explain) This other body does not have to be human; it can consist of any life form. It all depends on the quality of deeds performed throughout ones lifetime. If good deeds are performed, one is reincarnated into a "good" life form. If bad deeds are performed, one may be reincarnated into a "bad" life form. Some people also believe that reincarnation is a bad thing since one never gets to stay in ultimate supreme reality and is continuously put back on the earth.
