Default Question about Reincarnation...

Perhaps this is silly but..

Does the flower carnation (Dianthus ) , have anything to do with the spiritual belife of reincarnation?

Hi Celine, indirectly yes, all living things are subject to the cycle of birth and death and this includes flowers, trees etc. This continues until at last one reaches the human form of life in which one can comprehend the self and therefore choose to go back home.

You may benefit from watching this debate.

Hope this helps with one question and sparks many others.

oh! rein Carnation!!!

In my experience with Indian culture and vedic literature i have never seen this flower singled out for particular praise above any other flowers. Flowers however are very important in temple worship. Carnations (fragrant ones) are very popular in making garlands.

Is this a floral, or philosophical, or florally philosophical question?

hi celine

another word for it is embodyment, not to do with carnations..unless you wanna go poetic..

you need to look at the infinitive mode:

to in -carnate
(carne = flash)...infleshment, if you will, and then you may want to use it as re-in-carnate/reincarnation..
