Buddhism : Pred or Hungry Ghosts (เปรต)

           Buddhism  เปรต or Preta They are often translated into English as "hungry ghosts"  is a rebirth based on strong possessiveness and desire which were cultivated in a previous life or lives.  The sentient beings in this realm are known as hungry ghosts. They are constantly extremely hungry and thirsty, but they cannot satisfy these needs. In Tibetan versions of the Bhavacakra these beings are drawn with narrow necks and large bellies. This represents the fact that their desires torment them, but they are completely unable to satisfy themselves.  "Hungry ghost" is one of the six modes of existence (Six Realms). Hungry ghosts are pitiable creatures with huge, empty stomachs. They have pinhole mouths, and their necks are so thin they cannot swallow, so they remain hungry. Beings are reborn as hungry ghosts because of their greed, envy and jealousy. Hungry ghosts are also associated with addiction, obsession and compulsion. 

             บาป   หมายถึง สิ่งที่ทำให้จิตใจเสีย คือมีคุณภาพต่ำลง ไม่ว่าจะเสีย ในแง่ไหนก็เรียกว่าบาปทั้งสิ้น สิ่งที่ทำแล้วเป็นบาป คือ อกุศลกรรมบถ 10 ได้แก่  ฆ่าสัตว์ ลักทรัพย์ ประพฤติผิดในกาม พูดเท็จ พูดส่อเสียด พูดคำหยาบ พูดเพ้อเจ้อ คิดโลภมาก คิดพยาบาท มีความเห็นผิด "นตฺถิ ปาปํ อกุพฺพโต บาปย่อมไม่มีแก่บุคคลผู้ไม่ทำบาป"  อีกนัยหนึ่ง บาป หมายถึง สิ่งที่มนุษย์นั้นไม่ควรกระทำ ไม่ว่าด้วยทาง กาย วาจาหรือ ใจ เพราะเป็นสิ่งที่พึงจะนำทุกข์ มาแก่ตนและผู้อื่น

Cherokee WISDOM


A Cherokee chief is teaching his grandson about life.

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves."


"One is evil: he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego."


"The other is good: he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,
compassion and faith."


"This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed."
