According to Vedic sciences, Hindu philosophy believes in rebirth unless an individual’s Sanchit and Prarabdha Karmas are completely exhausted. It also believes in liberation wherein once the past karmas debt is over, the person does not take rebirth.

Garuda Purana; however, mentions that one can take rebirth in animal species.This means that one can be born as a donkey or a dog or anything else. Vedic science, on the other hand, says that once you get a human body, you will either be liberated or only get another human body.

The message of Garuda Purana can be read and interpreted in a different perspective. In mythology, humans have been linked to animal tendencies. For example, bull is linked to sexual and non-sexual desires, peacock to vanity, etc. Probably, people who wrote Garuda Purana meant that if you do not live according to the Shastras, you will end up getting another human body but with animal tendencies and behavior.
