Reply To: Descent of Gandhabba Into Womb


I had read in a post (it has been a while, so I cannot recall the post) that when somebody dies, he or she is born in the same area.
I was wondering, if a gandhabba is a mental body, and if a person happens to die in Europe, but has a lot of attachments to his or her home continent ( family, friends, property, etc) then the gandhabba will tend to go to that area where the attachment is, and the mind can travel instantly to that area. Assuming that the person still has time left in the human bhava and has not done any significant kamma to be born in a deva realm or apaya realms.
So even though a person may die in Europe, the next birth can happen in Asia or America (where ever the person had a deep attachment).
