The Reincarnation of Life
We all have been wondering where life originates and what happens to it after death. In the Surangama Sutra, you will find the answer. Life does not spring up spontaneously from nowhere; it is the force of karma that causes life to manifest in its different forms.
If you believe in Buddhism and learn more about Buddhist teaching, you will find the answer. As stated in the Surangama Sutra, life does not fall from the empty sky without any cause or condition. Nor does it spring up out of the ground for no reason. It is the force of karma that causes different forms of life to manifest in this world. So from the perspective of Buddhist teachings, the formation of life is rooted in self-attachment, karma and afflictions, all of which have brought us to where we are and will further take us to the next destination. Virtuous activities generate your happiness, and unvirtuous activities generate your sufferings. Your present life is the result of the past life. Your next life will be a consequence of this life. This is stated in the sutra. So if you want to understand the reincarnation of life, you’d better study more about the Buddhist philosophy.
