Four Thoughts

  • Precious Human Birth 

     The eases and obtainments of this precious human rebirth are extremely difficult to find.

  • Impermanence

     Whoever is born possesses the phenomena of impermanence and death.

  • Karma
         The cause and result of virtuous and non virtuous actions cannot be denied.
  • Suffering
         The continuous character of the three realms of samsara is an ocean of suffering. By remembering this, may my mind turn to the holy Dharma.”
