Not to acknowledge facts brings in trouble later, because correct solution cannot be worked out without knowing the facts. I, therefore, believe that to reduce the afterlife risks, study Hindu philosophy is essential. The reason being, Hindu religion believes in after life and moving of a soul through different species according to the deeds over which you have control right in this life. Hinduism thus helps reduction of after life risks because there are well-established rules that tell the direction which you could heading to.
You will notice that Hinduism does not make any distinction based on religion, caste, nation and so on, while defining soul. Soul is any living entity and therefore, all living organisms are covered under this definition. What you get in this life and after this life is governed by your own deeds, irrespective of religion and culture you belong to. Even to get birth in different religions and cultures is also governed by deeds.
