"where the lifecycle ends, where there is an end to causes"

Saṅsāra or Saṃsāra (Sanskrit: संसार) literally meaning "continuous flow," is the cycle of birth, life, death, rebirth or reincarnation. 

In Indian religious philosophy, the good or bad actions (karma) committed by a person during the course of each lifetime determines the future destiny of each being. Samsara is closely linked with the idea of rebirth (or reincarnation), but also refers to the condition of life, and the experience of life.
