Meditation Categories 2. Freedoms and Advantages

8. Reflecting on the Cycle of Birth and Death

Longchen Nyingtik Meditation 8

The Beginning

Take refuge and arouse bodhichitta.

The Main Part

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.

The Ending

Dedicate all the merit of your practice to all sentient beings.
