How Do Near Death Experiences Fit Into Buddhism?

Postby AgeOfEden » Fri Sep 27, 2013 2:26 am

I know there is a belief in reincarnation in buddhism. I've also read that some people who have had those experiences learn to meditate to return to that feeling same realm in a sense. But on the other coin I've read that experiences like that are distractions and to bypass them like you would a thought?



There's actually a huge archive of these experiences here: http://www.youtube.com/user/NDEaccounts/videos


Here are a few examples of these Near Death Experiences:



This one seems to fit a tibetan book of the dead like story.




One from a war vet in 1971




I'm curious if anyone has had experiences like these through their meditations and if you'd like to share them.
