Future life (Buddhism)<往生>Believe it or not? It's up to you!

I believe deeply that everything can happen in this world. Why will I show this photo? I actually quite appreciate this photo as I feel the solemnity of the occasion.

   The picture shown above is the future life(Buddhism).In chinese it's called 往生. Have you heard it before? Believe it or not? It's up to you. As the olds describes,"better to believe the worst, and be pleasantly surprised, than to be optimistic and learn the worst."(宁可信其有,不可信其无

   Briefly speaking, future life means  new life after a person has been dead!! Don't think that all is finished after you die. Don't be so naive, nothing will last in life. Back to the topic, why I write about the future life? Is it just for fun? NO!!!

   I feel sorrow as my grandma was admitted into the hospital a few months ago as she injured in car accident. Currently, she got bacterial infection on her leg and affect the heart and kidney! My mom's friends told my mom that we have to be mentally prepared as my grandma may leave this world forever...Oh no, I feel frustrated. Yes, I feel perturbed.

   If my grandma leave this world, I hope that she's go to her place of peace---Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss or Sukhavati(Sanskrit)(中文翻译:西方极乐世界),I understand that nobody can escape their life from death. Everyone have birth, old age, illness and death(生老病死). Hence, we must appreciate the things we have including//which includes your family and friends. Live your life without regret ! Don't regret about the past!

   Next, I will explain the religious rite using mandarin.

这实属为了提醒我自己,顺便与各位分享。写了出来,信不信由你,但请不要毁谤,也请不要说迷信,因为每个宗教都有他不同的文化...感恩。有得罪的地方,请包涵。


亲人去世后你该怎么办?

1.当你面临你的亲人或者朋友要离开人世时,请不要在死人的面前哭泣,因为死人在刚去世后很有可能会因为听到你的哭泣声而不舍得离开你,继而想办法投胎,也许成为你的儿女或者孙子也不一定!请让他们安心去西方极乐世界或者是天堂

2.已故之人需要时间离开灵魂去另外的世界,所以请尽可能别在他死后去动摇他或者立即为死人换衣服,因为这样会让已故的人感到痛苦万分的。

3.为即将离开人世或者刚离开人世的亲人开示那就更好,那什么叫开示呢?简单来说就是开导。当亲人死后,请注意他们去世后的面容,假如那时候已故人的面容显得很害怕,很恐怖!那你就要多多注意了!因为这时候的他们是非常害怕的!而你们应该怎么做呢?

4.一般人死后,你们都会请法师来诵经念佛的吧?这可是能够帮助他们向往极乐世界噢~~意思就是帮助他们脱离恐惧感,脱离痛苦!因为诵经能够平复已故人的心情,只要亲人的面容改变,那你们才可以放心“一点”哦。

5.别以为死人去世后就一了百了,没这回事!

6.亲人去世后,家人扮演非常重要的角色!当你的亲人去世后,最好是由你们为已故的亲人开示,以及念佛,诵经。因为已故的人听到亲人的声音才会感到比较安心和比较能够接受你们说所的话...假如由法师为已故人开示也可以,不过老实说, 效果不及亲人(你们)所说的一句话

7.身为一家人的你们,千万千万不可以在已故亲人面前哭泣,假如你们实在忍不住,请去外面哭。哭完再回来劝亲人跟随阿弥陀佛去西方极乐世界。为了已故亲人的未来,请让已故亲人去更美好的世界吧!!!

8.要让你的亲人真正脱离痛苦,我建议"亲人"们能够抽出时间轮流诵《地藏菩萨本愿经》和念“南无阿弥陀佛”七七四十九天,这才能够帮助已故人脱离痛苦,得享快乐

9.除了要诵经,最好是能够为亲人吃斋或吃素 至少七七四十九天尤其是你们的父亲和母亲!切记,一生人就那么个父亲和母亲,为他们吃素四十九天和诵经应该不难吧?

10.我所说的《开示》就是:
由家人劝已故之人跟随最熟悉的佛陀去西方极乐世界。假如生前你的亲人时常跪拜观世音菩萨,请在已故人的耳边,对他们说:“快点跟随观世音菩萨去西方极乐世界吧!”
顺带一提,仔细观看观世音菩萨的特征,然后告诉已故人
例如:观世音菩萨的额头中间有位佛陀呀,手里拿着柳枝呀~  

11.如果有什么不明白,可以询问我
    我会为你解答。

不知道亲人往生后找谁助念或者诵经
你可以询问净宗学会负责人
