Uncanny Factoid: Rising from the Dead (3 pics)

Rebirth through actions.

In Bangkok a Buddhist temple believes that actions are stronger than words. Followers come in and lie down in a coffin for a few moments, and then they rise again feeling the rebirth of a new life.

People at Wat Prommanee wait in line to get a chance to ride from the dead and be reborn. This practice started over 6 years ago.  There are 9 colorful coffins in the hall of Wat Prommanee Temple. Hundreds of people lie down in them for almost 2 minutes, listen to religious chants and then rise up and feel reborn cleansed and relaxed.

Thais believe that daily resurrection washes away bad luck and helps to prolong their lives. It also gives them positive thoughts, so that a lot of these people come back again to Wat Prommanee Temple to rebirth themselves over and over again.

 

Learn Something Fun:  reincarnation, also called transmigration or metempsychosis, in religion and philosophy, rebirth of the aspect of an individual that persists after bodily death—whether it be consciousness, mind, the soul, or some other entity—in one or more successive existences.
