buddhism teaches us that suicide is an unhealthy death. the condition of the mind during suicide is chaotic, without peace. this condition will only lead to more suffering in the next life. suicide also harms others as well as harming the self. it is a negative act that produces negative karma....very negative karma. negative karma one thousand fold.
Ven. Pende Hawter says:
The state of mind at the time of death is regarded as extremely
important, because this plays a vital part in the situation one is
reborn into. This is one reason why suicide is regarded in Buddhism as
very unfortunate, because the state of mind of the person who commits
suicide is usually depressed and negative and is likely to throw them
into a lower rebirth. Also, it doesn't end the suffering, it just
postpones it to another life.

but how bad is it? we are fortunate to be born as humans. will he be given another chance as a human or born into a lower realm? or worse, suffer in one of the hells for his act?
i don't want him to suffer anymore. i know that all life is suffering. and perhaps we have to keep coming back until we learn how to deal with it....the four noble truths.
today is the fourth day of bardo for him.... today he will awaken. in my heart i am holding his hand....



don't fear death

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
