I am a devout Christian.
My mother recently passed away and I am very interested in your Buddhist concept of the 49-day period.
What can I do to help my dear mother who wishes to go near God?
The 49-day period is what we Buddhists are taught about what happens to most people after death.
During this 49-day period, you can help my mother’s cause of obtaining a better life by drawing near your God and making donations on her behalf. For example, you can donate a lot of money to charity or to help build a new wing for your church. That’ll go a long way toward helping her future life and getting what she wishes.
