The purpose of this meditation is to develop the wish to end our samsaric cycle of suffering.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for Meditation. Then I thought about my ears. At the moment I have problems with my ears which makes it difficult for me to hear people talking. I feel isolated. I feel like people think I am stupid. I hate having to ask people to ‘say that again’.

This is a fairly trivial suffering and others have much much worse sufferings than this to deal with. Nevertheless it is something I can work with in Meditation.

I thought about how unhappy it makes me. Then I thought about all my previous lives where I have experienced much worse suffering and misery. How many times have I suffered like this? How many lives have been dominated by much worse suffering?

I contemplated all the suffering I must have experienced in the past lives. I also thought about all the suffering I face in future lives.

I want it to end. I need it to end.

I focused in the wish for my samsara to end, and became familiar with it.


May all living beings enter the path to liberation by developing the wish to be free from samsara.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will remember how tired I am of Samsara.
