Thank you all, (and thank you Ben for moving the topic to a more suitable location.....)
This helps clarify matters extraordinarily well.
So, saying that Buddhism
does not ascribe to the notion of reincarnation, is actually not factually accurate.
it would be better to say that Theravada
Buddhism does not ascribe to the process of reincarnation, although other schools, chiefly in the Mahayana traditions, do.....
I'm not aiming to start an inter-tradition flame war here. I'm merely attempting to clarify the positions of the different schools.
I'd be interested to hear from anyone who could perhaps clarify how Mahayana Buddhists manage to reconcile the notion of Reincarnation with anatta and anicca.
It's an interesting topic for discussion, and I'd like to learn more. Perhaps it would be of interest to new members too, but if Moderators feel this is not suitable, please feel free to edit, delete or close......
