10 stories of people having supernatural experiences after dying and then coming back to life.
Pali for “craving,” the force which keeps drawing us back into physical rebirth, “the maker of the tabernacle,” as Buddhist scriptures put it (cf. Dhammapada, 153-154 [“Canto of Old Age,” verses 8-9]), i.e., the psycho-physical part of our human nature. It is listed as the eighth of the twelve Nidanas, that which arises from our having feelings (vedan€) and in its turn generates clinging to existence (upadana). In Sanskrit, it is called TRSNA, literally “thirst.”
