Each individual has many reincarnations, but being born a human means the soul is nearing the end of rebirth. God judges each soul at death and may either reincarnate the soul or, if pure enough, allow it to rest with him. But my question...is it or is it not true that, there are two beings living on your shoulders, that are recording everything you do, until death. And after death, if you did not recite prayer and do good, a being so ugly and so repulsive, beats you up with a stick until you finaly reach waheguru. Now is this said because it is fact. Or is it said to scare a human, into not doing bad things and keeping them on the right track?
