OK, I just had this conversation last week.
A buddhist lady moved here from Tiawan, and was invited to a catholic church. She went out of couriosity. She was an opera singer in Tiawan and very
good, here she had not sung at all.
Although never having gone to church ever before, she found that she knew the songs they were singing like they were old friends. She knew the words
and the meanings depsite english being a second language.
Not only that when the songs started playing she would burst into tears, without reason, She said she would stand there and tears would flow like
water down her face but all she felt was confused and embarrassed.
She was really perplexed about it and everyone said she must have learned the songs for a long time because she sang them so well. But for her it was
the very first time she had heard them.
This went on for months.
She felt that in a past life she had been a catholic nun, that is the only reason she could come up with to explain the intense feelings of
familiarity with the songs and the emotions they invoked.
Now I don't believe in reincarnation, so this is not my story, but I couldn't explain it any other way either. She not only knew the songs but was
also very familier with every aspect of Easter, and she had never encountered it in her life before, as she was riased in a strict Buddhist culture
with no christian input.
