Punabbhava (Pāli ‘again-becoming’), the Buddhist understanding of rebirth. Since there is no self or soul being reborn, ‘rebirth’ suggests too strong an understanding of what continues. Re-becoming simply affirms that there are continuities of consequence, in which a consciousness of what is happening (as in the case of humans) is a part of the process.
