Stockholm has a sizable Thai and Southeast Asian community; many of whom bring along their traditions, cultures, and religions. Though I consider myself a practicing Christian, I have friends who actively practice other religions. I was recently at one of my Thai friends for dinner and she invited me into her Buddhist prayer room.

    It is interesting. I am not a Buddhist but I find one of their sayings very interesting, that because those of us who are born as women now once we die we move on to the next level and that we are done that is our reward. Whereas a man has to continue to come back again and again until he is born a woman and then their journey is over. This is what someone told me when my mother passed on this year.

      So sorry to hear about your mother, Monica. May she rest in perfect peace.
