(Rome) According to an important official in the Vatican, people are reincarnated after death. The body they assume depends upon their karma in previous lives.
The official who made the statement is Chaiyong Satjipanon, the Thai ambassador to the Holy See. He said, "As a Buddhist, I believe in Reincarnation and hope to eventually break out of the cycle of death an rebirth. Hey wait a minute, this isn't one of those articles that tries to make some obscure statement sound like the teaching of the Catholic Church is it? Hey, where are you going?"
