Suicide is bad karma

A Korean film star committed suicide a few days ago. She seemed to be the victim of incompatible marriage. To me, suicide should not be encouraged. We should value life more than anything else.

To the Buddhists, committing suicide is considered killing of lives and it constitutes bad karma and the person who died in this way will go to hell. Hence all genuine Buddhists will not end their own lives.

Legally if one tries to commit suicide and fails, he or she will be charged in court too.

Let us try to make life easy for every body and let no one think of ending his life to escape certain type of predicament. Good religious education is of help in this matter.
