Rebirth experiences are common in indigenous cultures, and in fact are encouraged by rite and ritual. "...the general pattern and purpose of the ritual are the same. He "dies" to the former life of childhood and of ignorance of esoteric knowledge and "rises" or is "reborn" to a new life. The latter is not merely adult life....It is much more: it is a life of knowledge and power. At the end of the ritual journey, with its trails, loneliness, "death," revelations, and rejoicing, he can say: "Whereas previously I was blind to the significance of the seasons, of natural species, of heavenly bodies, and of man himself, now I begin to see; and whereas before I did not understand the secret of life, now I begin to know."
