Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience cremation? Well now you can! There is a “ride” in China called the Samadhi. Riders will have to lie down in a wooden coffin before ride attendants push them into a “furnace” – which heats up to a sweltering 40 degrees Celsius with the use of hot air and light projections to create that “authentic experience of burning.”
After “dying”, the guests will be transported to soft, womb-like capsule where they will go through feeling a “rebirth.”
So, for 249 yuan (about 40 bucks) you can experience what it feels like to get cremated.
Buddhism: (Pali / Sanskrit: समाधि) mental concentration or composing the mind. It is one of three divisions of the Noble Eightfold Path.
Upon development of samādhi, one’s mind becomes purified of defilements, calm, tranquil, and luminous. Once the meditator achieves a strong and powerful concentration, his or her mind is ready to penetrate and see into the ultimate nature of reality, eventually obtaining release from all suffering.
O blazing Light! awaken my heart, awaken my soul, ignite my darkness, tear the veil of silence, and fill my temple with Thy glory.
Focus The Gaze Through The Omniscient Spiritual Eye
The Hindu masters taught that to gain the deepest knowledge one should focus his gaze through the omniscient spiritual eye. When concentrating hard, even the non-yogi wrinkles his forehead at the point between the eyebrows - the center of concentration and of the spherical spiritual eye, the seat of soul intuition. That is the real “crystal ball” into which the yogi gazes to learn the secrets of the universe. Those who go deep enough in their concentration will penetrate that “third” eye and see God. Seekers of truth therefore should develop the ability to project their perception through the spiritual eye. The practice of Yoga helps the aspirant to open the single eye of intuitive consciousness.*
*During deep meditation, the single or spiritual eye becomes visible as a bright star surrounded by a sphere of blue light that, in turn is encircled by a halo of golden light. This omniscient eye is variously referred to in scriptures as the third eye, the star of the East, the inner eye, the dove descending from heaven, the eye of Shiva, and the eye of intuition, “If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” ( Matthew 6:22).
