1)It's a form of a question by pupils and reponses by the teachers.
2)It's the rebirth of a soul. The Hundu's say if your bad you will turn into a animal or maybe a bug, but if your good you will either become rich next time reincarnation happens or your soul will be with Brahman.
3)To escape reincarnation you must be very kind to everything, you mustn't kill any living thing, and you do rituals at your home or in public.
4)Selfless deeds, Knowledge, Devotion.
5)Brahman, Vishnu, Shiva.

1. It means sitting near the teacher which is you ask a question and someone responses or to say answers your question.

2. Reincarnation is when a person’s soul dies its reborn into an others living thing over and over again. Good behavior gets rewarded and bad behavior gets punished. Followers of Hinduism can get to be reborn into higher position those that have been bad will go to a lower position and may become animals.

3. To escape the cycle of death and rebirth they must obey their Dharma. Like a man protects his wife and the wife protects his kids orb like a king protects his subjects.

Upanishads well it means sitting near the teacher. And many of the Upanishads are pupils and responses from your teacher.
Reincarnation
It’s when the people die there soul is reborn to another living thing. Well if you lied in life and you could be born as an animal. And if you lived a good life like worshiping god and praising him you could come as another animal or you can go with brahma and be part of him.
Well you can’t escape reincarnation if you live a bad life you get punished if you live a good life if get rewarded.
