The purpose of this meditation is to contemplate the sufferings of the human realm as depicted in the diagram of the wheel of life, and to develop renunciation for samsara.

I began by making appropriate preparations for meditation and then brought to mind the sufferings of birth, sickness, ageing and death, and the other sufferings of human life.

After a while of thinking about these sufferings, I developed a sincere wish to be free from these sufferings and all the sufferings of samsara.


May all living beings be free from the sufferings of samsara.
