I was wondering if someone could tell me more about reincarnation. I've been a buddhist for a few years now and up until recently i've ignored the whole re-birth issue. I honestly don't believe that it is possible that after death for your "soul" or your "consciousness" travels to another body. I'd like to avoid the supernatural explanations.
Have I interpretted the teachings of reincarnation improperly? Is there another interpretation? How do you view re-birth? Do you think it is important to the teachings of buddhism or can it be omited.
