To all or none,

More than 3 months ago , we discussed ,the hells in buddhism.
Just received a text from my Sri-lankan Bhikkhu,Bhikkhu Samahita.(theravadin lineage).It is not for the faint of heart ,but part of Buddhism.Recently wrote a post on rebirthing into animals,this is a much stronger text.



Friends:

Those who steal get a Hungry Ghost Rebirth!




Those who steal food & who are too lazy for doing good deeds, become
corpse or menstruation eating Ghosts, and abortion eating Ghosts (Peta).
Whosoever are engaged in low praxis, mean, miserly, avaricious, stingy,
& the constantly greedy are reborn after death as swollen neck Ghosts...
Whoever prevents others from giving & does not himself give anything,
becomes an ever hungry & thirsty Ghost, needle-mouthed & big-bellied...
Whoever clings to his wealth only for his family, but who neither enjoys,
nor shares it, is reborn as ghost eating only what is given, such as things
given at funerals... Whoever longs to steal anothers property, but then
later regrets it, is reborn as a peta feeding on excrement, pus & vomit...
Whoever speaks aggressively, angry, words hitting like daggers, becomes
a ghost with mouth like a furnace burning fiercely with red coals & ashes...
And whoever is cruel minded, without sympathy and quarrelsome, would
become a fiery ghost eating worms, leeches, insects, crabs and beetles...

As I had mentionned,it is rough however the people that become these hungry ghost,made their beds.now they have to sleep in it
