"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Thanks for your responses, I also viewed a clear answer from a series of Retro's comments on another thread (after my original post).

Cheers.

Every time a discussion of "proof of reincarnation" appears, Dr. Stevenson's work is dragged out again.

As the article states, "Stevenson never claimed that he had proved the existence of reincarnation..."

In addition, science requires reproducible results to prove a theory; one set of results proves nothing. No reproducible results = no proof.

Full stop.

Stevenson's work has been discussed here several times - see, e.g.
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9900&start=20
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=41&start=920
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1970&start=0
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1636&start=0

Not saying it's right or wrong, just saving people reinventing wheels.

Here is a review that I found some time ago of Stevenson's book ''Children who remember previous lives''
