Today I meditated on the sufferings of the Gods. They live for a very long time, but at the end of their lives they show signs of death, and they are shunned by their fellow gods, which they find very painful.

I developed sincere renunciation for samsara – even the best conditions are impermanent, and this impermanence leads to suffering.

May all living beings recognise the sufferings of samsara, and feel the deep urge to free themselves.
