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.

Dedication

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

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will try to free myself from samsara by keeping a mind of renunciation.
