Sounds of Chinese Meditation
This incident happened recently on New Years Day, 2008 in Vancouver, B.C, Canada. My grandmother passed away suddenly from natural causes on Christmas Eve, which shocked and crushed us. My family is Buddhist, so for the past few days, we've visited a temple and meditated in her honour. My mom purchased this small radio-like box that repeatedly plays a meditation, and she has left that on in my grandmother's room throughout the day for the last little bit.
Monday, Dec 31st, was the one week anniversary of my grandmother's death and according to Chinese traditions, the decease returns home to visit their loved ones. As usual, my parents had the box playing throughout the day and turned it off before they went to bed. Here's where it gets weird.
The next morning on New Years Day, my mom woke up around 9 a.m. to use the bathroom, and she distinctly heard a soft song of meditation, just like the one heard from the box. She asked my dad if he had left it on the night before, and he said, "No." Thinking she had imagined it, she went back to sleep.
Around 10 a.m., my dad woke up and heard the same soft sounds of meditation. He started wondering if he had indeed forgotten to turn off the box and went into my grandmother's room to check, only to find it OFF! How can you explain BOTH of my parents hearing the meditation?! We've eliminated the possibilities of it coming from our neighbours or TV. My boyfriend believes that it was my grandmother's way of letting us know that she is still around and that she is alright. Although it is a little spooky, but I find comfort in my grandmother being let known through meditation.
