Yogi: Is awareness going to help in our rebirth if we die in an accident?
Sayadaw: In the end, we should die with awareness. Awareness is a wholesome mind – in the awareness, there are sati, samadhi, faith, effort and panna – and these 5 spiritual faculties are there to support your next life.
That’s why we can use anxiety (when dying) as an object when awareness is present. Awareness is a wholesome mind; the anxiety is the effect of past kamma. There are two kamma – one is the effect of past kamma, and the other is new, present kamma. Awareness is present kamma.
