I can second that. We have in Holland a Tibetan
Buddhist-tempel, with corresponding monestary. With our
lodge we went there and had a great time (also met by pure
accident some TS-members from ROtterdam). That is not the
point of course. THe point is that the people there
absolutely believed that bad people do reincarnate into
animals, and that it happens often.
