I am just curious. I am doing a bit of research for my book and wanted to know what-if any-are some other stories about someone being resurrected and so on.

Hindus and Sikhs really do not have a resurrection story.
Hindus believe in the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. It is believed that MANY incarnations/avatars of them have walked this earth in the form of man. Also, many have walked the earth as prophets of the One Universal Creator (Brahma, God, Allah, WaheGuru, Jehovah..whatever name one wishes to use). However, they do not believe that one died and resurrected. There is the belief in reincarnation, and I guess some could consider that a form of resurrection. But then it must be taken into consideration that the belief is that ALL reincarnate, not just those of the divine.

Sikhs believe in THE One Universal Creator. That all who believe, all who worship, all religions, all lead back to/are belief in THE One Universal Creator (whether one chooses to use God, Allah, Brahma, Jehovah, etc. as the name of reference). They do not believe that the Universal Creator has ever walked the earth in the form of man. They DO believe in the prophets (acknowledge, revere and respect them all as well. The Guru Granth Sahib is the only holy texts/book that acknowledges the prophets of other religions by name and reveres them for who/what they were). However, they do not believe that there has been an avatar/incarnation of the Creator who has ever lived as a human being. So, they do not have a resurrection tale either. Like Hindus, they also believe in reincarnation, and one could choose to view reincarnation as a form of resurrection if they wanted.
