Unusual ritual

I would be very interested to see what my Mahayana friends think of this article.

There's an ongoing discussion going about it here.

Ah! the famous Thai coffin ritual.... :rolleye:
Never doubted their creativity in trying to draw people back to the temples, just wished they were as creative in dealing with cases where it also 'backfires', i.e from increasing some cases claiming that they ended up experiencing more 'supernatural' than they could handle and such...
Anyway, the Chinese folklore already have their version, sleeping in a casket/coffin brings 'longevity' it seems....

Even inspired a movie out of it :tongue: here
