Re: Possible rebirth?

I'm just afraid that, if I am not dying consciously. Because what if I'm in a nightmare when I die suddenly, I'm in a state of fright. And if rebirth in a realm where I am ruled by feelings of fright and emotionally unstable, my practice will be hindered.

Possible rebirth?

We know that how we die, will affect our next life. Eg: If we die sad, we will reborn in a depressed realm. My question is : If we die suddenly when we sleep, let's say we are sleeping, but suddenly the wall collapse and bricks knocked the head and die instantly. Then what are the possibilities of o...

Videos about buddhism

Apart from Life of the Buddha or Dhamma talks, are there anything that appeal to be interesting to teens? I am finding some videos online about Buddhism that we want to play it on a projector screen in school.

Re: About experience(s)

And is there any connection between "my" experience and "your" experience? Do they have something in common and if so what may it be? (I don't ask for similarities, e.g. every experience consists of name and form and consciousness) I think we all have "similar" experience but not exactly connection...

Re: Feng Shui

Ancestor worshiping but they pick the place to bury. So It's a feng shui.

In Asia here a lot of Chinese believe in Feng Shui. They said that the wealth and health of the following generations depended on the grave of the elders. Something like if that grave is situated in the place with good and big mountains and hill, the next generation will be wealthy and so; if you re...

Re: Ghost Festival

Unspoken, are you referring to the Chinese 'All Souls Day', 'Qing Ming' or the Hungry Ghost festival? In the former, they do offerings at the graves and/or ancestral plaques in the temple/home whereas in the latter, it is done at the roadside or designated sites/temples although a small number seem...
