“Once some people asked the Buddha to perform a ceremony for a dead relative in order to help him be re-born in heaven. The Buddha did not send them away, for in his compassion he wanted them to understand the laws of reality. He thus gave the sorrowful mourners an unusual order: “Mix stones and ghee (liquefied butter) together and throw this mixture into a pond.” When the surprised relatives had done this, the Buddha instructed them: “Now call the priests and ask them to pray: ’May the stones come up and float on the surface, and may the ghee sink down to the bottom!’” The people then began to understand that in the round of rebirths one rises or sinks according to one’s deeds, not through the power of prayers and rituals
- The message in the teachings of Kamma, Rebirth, Samsara – a gateway to deeper understanding ‘by Ashin Ottama (1998)

The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit and the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care and let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings.” – The Buddha
