Death in Buddhism

There is another passage of this kind, repeated in several books. Near the corpse of a monk Godgiki vilos dark cloud. When students asked Buddha, it means, he replied: "This evil Mara seeking knowledge [of consciousness] noble Godgiki... but noble Godgnka entered into nirvana, his knowledge does not live anywhere else." What is this mysterious nirvana where escapes cognition (consciousness) after death? Why it is there, if the soul is nothing? And what about the endless chain of births and deaths, which according to the teachings of the Buddha, all life is doomed? The reason for these differences is that which existed before the Buddha, a powerful Indian religious and philosophical traditions nalozhilae on his teachings and is gradually swallowed it, introducing its own elements, and replacing some elements alien to it. Later Buddhism is divided into several areas, among them theravada ( "narrow way of salvation"), Mahayana ( "a way of salvation"), vadzhrayana (or tantrizm), Lamaism (a connection with Buddhism and Taoism Shintoism), Zen Buddhism. Each of these has its own characteristics in the understanding of death and especially - afterlife. But let us return to edinonu source - indeed the teachings of the Buddha. Because of the objective number of Odin - the liberation from suffering, the death to help you with this, the Buddha sees as the best finals of life: Instantly, overnight, all drawn up; Life in the povita death; Everything is destroyed, creating; Blessed pritekshie to a place of rest. Death is not just natural, it will. Know the truth, striving for absolute must, on the teachings of the Buddha, to suppress all the sensual feelings, all the colors and smells of land. That is why the death - the necessary step towards the ideal. But death does not guarantee the achievement of the Absolute, for the posthumous fate of man depends on his earthly life. After the death of man could expect the fate of the three options: instantaneous transformation (the so-called relocation of a shower), falling into the hell (to move to a new body) care nirvana. Study on the relocation of a shower, even before the Buddha existed in brahmanizme, said that the human soul, according to the law of karma, is an infinite number of relocations, and embodied not only in humans but also in plants and animals. Some been translated into kings, Brahmins and celestial.
