The Past and Present Life of the “reincarnated”persons in Dong village of HunanTongdao

The Past and Present Life of the “reincarnated”persons in Dong village of HunanTongdao

The "reincarnation"legend is widely spreadat the junction of three provinces, Lipingof Guizhou, Sanjiang of Guangxi and Tongdao of Hunan. The so-called "regeneration" is human reincarnation. This is a very magical and mysterious problem. As noted above, the question of "Do you believe it?" has become one of the most interesting premises. The well-known reincarnation of Living Buddhas in Tibet is a reincarnation event which has large influence, and the reincarnation of Living Buddhas even has a significant impact on the religion and politics of the local as well as the county. The most well-known is the Golden Vase Lottery by the reincarnated soul boy of Panchen Lama in 1990, its grand occasion has been televised and it was the rare high-profile publicity of an atheistic country. In contrast, the most interesting point of the Dongs’ reincarnation is that the heroes of the stories heard or seen by people haven’t any political purposes, and they are ordinary peoplewithout any particular social statuses, while their past and present lives are always linked, such as the family ancestors or good friends incarnated into neighbors, or the parents become grandchildren, and even men become women. In Shuangjiang town of Tongjiang county, Hunan, we talked with two girls named Yang Richun and Yang Gailiu, respectively.
