A comprehensive list of suttas on rebirth ?

Postby morning mist » Thu Sep 08, 2011 12:32 pm

Does anyone have a complete list of suttas on rebirth ? If not, then what are some suttas about the effects of an activity ripening in this very life and what are some suttas about the effects of an activity ripening in the next life as well ?

There'll be a lot. Just go to www.accesstoinsight.org and type in 'rebirth' in the Search box on the upper right hand corner..

Hi everyone,

Thanks for sharing. I will go back and read or reread them. If you come across some suttas on rebirth that are not listed here yet, feel free to add them or link to them. It would be nice to have a comprehensive compilation of all the suttas on rebirth.
