Before this communist invasion, there was a tradition in Tibet, called bardo Todol, and a person who was going to die preety soon, would have a master nearby, and the master will speak to him in certain ways, so he know that he will reincarnate, and if he dies consciously, as to say, if he LEAVES the body CONSCIOUSLY, he will be able to choose WHICH kind of parents he will have next life. And he will enter a new womb CONSCIOUSLY, and that very life he is granted to become enlightened, by his right. Materialistic people will say this is all nonsense. I dn't feel so. What is that for you? Love and peace.
