Is there a previous life before this life? If there isn’t, then this is the one and only one life, and saying it is ‘final’ is not meaningful.
If there is, then you cannot exclude the believe of rebirth/reincarnation.
In Buddhism, death follows birth. If there is no birth, then there is no death. That is the final rebirth for the fully enlightened Arhats and Buddha.
Yes when the life cycle of this Kalyug ends all souls will merge back into the One.
On pager #17 in the Zhuan Falun Lecture on the web:
“Another belief in some religions is that a person who doesn’t have any virtue will have both his body and soul destroyed. His master soul is annihilated, and when his life’s over all of him dies. Nothing is left.”
Therefore, if one commits many sins such as killing a lot of good people, his soul may cease to exist after he pays off the debt.
Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School, teaching the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
Falun Gong, Tibetans,other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China. Can you kindly sign a petition to stop persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, please ?
No, they do not believe in the final death, but they do believe in the final birth.
Those who attain enlightenment in their present birth are supposed not to born again. Enlightened are considered immortal.
i dont know about buddhism but in hinduism you cant really talk much about death without talking about reincarnation. the two go hand in hand, death is rebirth.
Buddhism and Hinduism aren’t the same religion and in fact Theravada buddhism has almost nothing to do with Hindu beliefs (although Mahayana is heavily influenced with them).
And Buddhism also doesn’t teach reincarnation (at least not physical)
