The purpose of this meditation is to generate renunciation for Samsara.
I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then started by thinking about how in this life and my future lives I will have to undergo the sufferings of ageing sickness and death.
As I contemplated these fates I realised that I don’t even want to die once – let alone countless times in my future lives. I don’t want to get sick again and I don’t want age in this life let alone all my future lives.
But if I do not attain liberation from Samsara I will have to undergo these sufferings many many times.
I developed to wish “I must attain liberation from Samsara as quickly as possible”
I focused on this determination for the rest of the meditation.
May all living beings develop pronunciation for Samsara
Practice in the meditation break
I will try always to remember my wish to avoid the countless sufferings of future lives.
