Life Beyond Death | Dhamma Talk by Ajahn Dhammasiha
Ajahn Dhammasiha reminds us that death is not the end. We do not suddenly cease to exist at the moment of death.What we call 'mind', or 'consciousness', or 'the heart' in a metaphorical sense, actually survives the death of the body, and will move on to a new rebirth depending on one's karma and desires.There is even good evidence available for survival of consciousness beyond death: There are meny cases where modern medicine succeeds in resuscitate persons who have been clinically dead already. They have no more measurable heart or brain funciton, even for several minutes, but are revived with electroshocks to the heart, artificial respiration, strong medications etc.Amazingly, a considerable number of those resuscitated report conscious experiences during the time while they were 'clinically dead'. Some even see their own body in the operating theater, and describe what doctors said or did while they were 'clinically' dead! They may also see a beautiful light that they are floating towards, travers heavenly landscapes, or meet and talk to previously deceased friends and relatives.This is know as 'Near Death Experience' (NDE). Ajahn relates some examples of such stories, and members of the audience mention events in their own circle of friends and relatives.www.dhammagiri.netwww.youtube.com/channel/UCJINt0JJBfFm_x0FZcU9QJwwww.tinyletter.com/dhammagiri/archive.
