8. Reflecting on the Cycle of Birth and Death
Longchen Nyingtik Meditation 8
Take refuge and arouse bodhichitta.
Reflect on the plights of suffering beings of the three worlds and six realms who have been wandering in samsara since time immemorial. Until now, they have not seen the light of liberation; it is because they have not seized the precious human existence they once had and neglected to practice the authentic Dharma. Now that I have obtained a human body complete with freedoms and advantages, I must make it meaningful by endeavoring on the Dharma path.
Dedicate all the merit of your practice to all sentient beings.
