Belief in Reincarnation Strongest in Hungary

Postby Astus » Mon Apr 25, 2011 1:32 pm

The belief in reincarnation was strongest in Hungary.
Of people who believed in reincarnation 13 percent were from Hungary, while Swedes made up the biggest proportion of people who said they don't know what happens after death. South Korea and Spain had the highest percentage of people who thought "you simply cease to exist."

1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.
