2. Transferred Birth Marks
It is tradition in various parts of Asia that upon the death of a person, the corpse is marked by his relatives with soot so that his soul reincarnates within the same family. Such mark is considered a birthmark and evidence of rebirth of the soul.
In Myanmar, a boy was believed to be the reincarnation of his grandfather when he was born bearing a rarest birthmark on his left arm similar to the one where his deceased grandfather’s had been marked.
