How can I prepare for death? I believe in the afterlife. Near death experiences and reincarnation cases point to an afterlife. I read about reincarnation rituals where they mark the body with some paste in some cases and the person is reborn with a marking in that same spot. I just want to know what I need to do before I die because I'm not sure.

If you believe there’s an afterlife then why are you so concerned? Just die.

It only takes seconds to die unless you get your head severely damaged.

the don't worry about it. just live and try and do for others more than yourself. with in reason that is.

thats the best we can do.

our luck, they are going to crack the death code just after we die. but I 3/4-ers think we will be the lucky ones.

Your wealth, your belongings, your designation, your family, *NOTHING* goes with you.

The only thing that does go with you is your good and bad actions/deeds.

IMO,
Try to make the best of your given time by living a peaceful and morally cautious life where you try to do good to others and avoid being harmful to others.

That’s the best preparation of death.

If there is an afterlife then there is no coming back here - otherwise, we would have billions of people by now who would tell us about their first hand experience of seeing what’s after death. There is none! No one comes back.

All this rebirth with a marking is BS. IMO.

if i were them ... I would use.

there might be six times that amount of "matter" on us right now and we don't feel it at all.

whats that mean? the earth is 6-times bigger. And we don't know it and nobody has ever known it.

the data suggest its there.
and its not a lot of data either.

...if one is so inclined...


..."The Tibetan Book of the Dead", aka(Bardo Thotol). is a very interesting read, more about the process of dying then the end result, kinda dry, tough to get through but i found it helpful...


...there's another good book which breaks down the Bardo Tholol, much lighter, easier read, "The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying", by Sogyal Rinpoche...i suggest one starts with this before tackling the Bardo Thotol...


...again, if one is so inclined...
