BUDDHISM & NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE
Are there NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE in which a Buddhist encountered Buddha? YES!
Dr. Atwater is an international authority on near- death states as well as a near-death experiencer. She is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. More than 3,000 people are registered at her discussion form site, and we understand that they have one of the largest databases on NDEs in the world.
Where arguments arise amongst various people and groups is over the interpretation of that light and any form it make take, and how to regard it.
Scientists say it is endorphins; Muslims say it is fantasy; religious fundamentalists of any “stripe” say it is Satan (Lucifer). People of faith say it is either of God or of emissaries from God.
WHAT IS CLINICAL DEAD?
WHAT ARE NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES?
Numerous experiencers see figures and forms in the light. These are variously described as angels, guides, guardians, light beings (beings made entirely of light), religious figures, high holy ones and often kids call them “the people.”
The vast majority of individuals remain consistent overtime with what they say and do not distort original narratives. That means accusations of New Age jargon, religious prophesy, Christian visions, Western indulgences, or the like, are untrue.
THREE KINDS OF VERITABLE EVIDENCE
There can be mixups as in the case of Jeanie Dicus. She was a Jewess yet she was visited by Jesus. This so surprised her and confounded her that she promptly challenged Jesus, and continued to do so throughout her entire near-death episode, saying: “I don’t believe in You. Why are You here?”
Atheists report the same type of visitations as do religious folk. In other words, you don’t have to believe in anything to be surprised at what you find when you nearly die.
Where this situation gets fascinating is when you invite experiencers to draw the high holy one/religious figure who visited them. To a person, you cannot tell the difference between a drawing from someone in the State of Wyoming from one done in Thailand or Israel or Russia or China or Nigeria. Patterning holds; differences in patterning only concern a few details of dress and behavior. They certainly don’t look like Buddha.
Whoever the Holy One is, that Being is held in great esteem and experienced as awesome, sacred beyond sacred, above and beyond anyone else.
If the individual has a sense of Deity, there simply are no words to encompass or express what that feeling is. “I have tried to explain ‘Beyond the Light’ but really, it’s impossible to do so.”
Dr. Atwater still tears up when embraced by the Presence of God that she experienced during her third episode back in 1977. That Presence and the passion she felt for it has fueled by steps since then, and is the very breath she breathes.
We challenged unbelievers to find even one case of a person of Buddhist faith encountering other beings of light. The implication is that there is only one path to God through Jesus Christ: “I am the Light and the Way”. John 14:6
Upon a full search on Google and YouTube for “Buddhist NDEs”, the only ones that can be found are of a hellish or unhappy nature.
All the faiths, with the exception of Buddhism, teach that there is a God who is a “Creator” who has created the cosmos.
There is even question of whether Buddhism should be called a religion and not rather a religious culture: it is pantheism without a theos (God). Consequently no one has ever seen Buddha in a Near Death Experience.
AS TOLD BY ATHET PYAN SHINTHAW PAULU
A Zealous Disciple of Buddha
When I turned 19 years (in 1977), I became a normal monk. The senior monk at my monastery gave me a new Buddhist name, which is the custom in our country. For years I strive to be the best monk I could and not to harm any living being. I studied the holy Buddhist teachings just like all my forefathers had done before me.
A Vision that Changed My Life Forever
I learned later that I actually died for three days (Near Death Experience). I was confused with this vision and didn’t know it was hell until I saw Yama, the king of hell [Yama is the name ascribed to the King of Hell in numerous cultures throughout Asia]. His face looked like the face of a lion, his body was like a lion, but his legs were like a naga [serpent spirit]. He had a number of horns on his head. His face was very fierce, and I was extremely afraid. Trembling, I asked him his name. He replied, “I am the king of hell, the Destroyer.”
The king of hell told me to look into the lake of fire. I asked him why my former leader was confined to this lake of torment. He replied, “Yes, he was a good teacher but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That’s why he is in hell.”
I started walking down the believers’ road. After a while the surface of the road turned to pure gold. The man in the white robe asked me to walk with him. He said, “I am the one who holds the key to heaven. Heaven is a very, very beautiful place. You cannot go there now but if you follow Jesus Christ you can go there after your life has finished on the earth.” The man’s name was Peter. You will be called ‘Paul who came back to life’.
He has remained a faithful witness to the Lord Jesus Christ. He exhorted other monks to forsake all false gods and follow Jesus Christ with all their hearts. Before the time of his sickness and death he had no exposure to Christianity at all. Everything that he learned
BUDDHIST CULTURE AND FAMILY
There is a lot of good in Buddhism. Christians do not come with a spirit of criticism or superiority. We can appreciate in Buddhism: the teaching that children obey their parents, including many aspects of morality, teaching against alcohol intoxication, opposing fornication and other forms of immorality.
Christians do not want to destroy the Buddhist culture and Buddhist way of life and replace it with Christian customs and Christian way of life. We realize that there may be a loss of one’s relationship with their family.
In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Buddhist member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
Why is this Extremely Dangerous?
One should rather live one’s life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live one’s life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is. Unknown author
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU
A LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION
” I love you.
The person who honors Me and lives with Me I will save.
Do not think that anyone is automatically saved when he or she dies. Each person receives what his or her conduct deserves.
If you have journeyed with Me and you have accepted Me as your friend, I will certainly bring you with Me when your life on earth is over.
If you have rejected Me and followed the road traced out by the evil one, you will go where Satan lives.
My dear people, as long as you live on earth, you are on trial. You are either working for your salvation or your condemnation.
You are in a life and death situation. Your conduct shows which path you have chosen.
My grace and My power are always there to help you if you ask for them. I truly desire your salvation but I cannot force it on you.
Therefore, you are free to choose but remember your choice has great consequences. You can only choose for Me or against Me.
There is no third way. I await your choice every day.
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
during those three days in the grave was new to his mind.
THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION
Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:
“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8
Let’s analyze this more closely:
See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ. Colossians 2:8
So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.
Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.
Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAY––not knowledge of abstract principles.
How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
