Lying in a coffin, in Thailand is believed to bring good luck and free people of their torments, also to prolong life and prevent morbid possibilities throughout the life. Just think of relaxing in a coffin as a source of some remedy for your stress in life. The ritual involves participants lying in coffins while monks perform death rites on them as if they are already dead. This is then followed by a chant of new life. Many participants had said they felt as if they were reborn after the ritual – with all their bad karma buried behind them. Some claimed that the ritual helped fool the spirits that they’re already dead so they could start their new lives afresh like newborns.
