Reply To: Monk’s NDE experience


I have a question towards this.

It seems that everyone that experiences NDE reports about the memories that keep coming up. That is, as I thought, a typical phenomena of the cuti-patisandhi transition. However, Lal says that this cuti-patisandhi transition does not occur at every death, only at the end of a bhava (so it could also happen days after the death of a body, in the Gandhabba, I assume)
Is it to be assumed that we all, when we die in this life, will experience these flashes but we might not necessarily grasp for anything, such that our bhava will just continue (in the same way as someone who just has an NDE but “decides” to return back to his life)?
What do you think?
