The Druze, an Abrahamic monotheistic religion that uphelds belief in reincarnation...

Post by Ajay0 »

The Druze is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion that holds belief in reincarnation as one of its fundamental beliefs.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Druze

The Druze believe that at the end of the cycle of rebirth, which is achieved through successive reincarnations, the soul is united with the Cosmic Mind (al-ʻaql al-kullī).

This is similar to the stance in the Dharmic religions, which emphasize Moksha or Nirvana.

Dharmic sects similar to the Druze in terms of belief in monotheism and reincarnation are Sikhism, Arya Samaj and Prajapita Brahmakumaris.

If you do right, irrespective of what the other does, it will slow down the mind. ~ Rajini Menon

Yes, it shows how widespread belief in reincarnation / rebirth really is; that an Abrahamic religion like Druze accepts reincarnation and it is even a prominent, very important doctrine to them.

They are not a sect of Islam, as some mistakenly believe. They are very eclectic and take from East and West and Greek philosophers.

When I lived in Israel, I noticed that they even serve in the IDF (Israeli Army).

Blavatsky had quite a bit to say about this very ancient brotherhood:

Truth is against the stream of common thought, deep, subtle, difficult, delicate, unseen by passion’s slaves cloaked in the murk of ignorance. Vipassī Buddha
