The Death of a Family Spiritual Leader -tinko
Permalink   


There are events in some lao families that require the service of a spiritual leader. confuse

Someone who performs the service and leads the ceremony, events which span from a birth of a child to a death of a spouse. 

Usually a family spiritual person, an elder or older uncle, will preside over a wedding as well as over a funeral, etc., with the help of monks.

My family has a few spiritual leaders.

However, they are of the same generation, age wise. phonecall.gif

When this generation dies there will be no one to replace them.

I can not see a tradition, a ceremony without a spiritual leader.

I am saddened at this thought...no.gif

computer monitor in front of me is starting to get blurred now as I type, damn tears.

spiritual leader is play important role in such the important events in Laos, Many important can't be done perfectly without the spiritual leader, especially in the Countryside, it's not so hard to find the spiritual leader in the countryside .

i think Laos is changing and everything is changing as well.

We do live in a world that's changing and moving so fast, and it wouldn't hurt us all if we sometimes sit back and ponder on non-material things. Spiritual leaders are always essential because they help us guide our motives and in the long run, keep our souls.
