The Perfect Human Rebirth: Freedom and Riches on the Path to Enlightenment
We live in a world that is becoming increasingly dangerous, a world ruled by ignorance, greed and aggression, full of every kind of suffering imaginable, a world that for many is the worst of all time. For us, however, it is not so. We have received not only a human rebirth, but also a perfect human rebirth that offers us every opportunity to practice the Dharma to the fullest extent possible.
The complete teachings of the Buddha still exist, as well as the perfect teachers who can explain them to us, guiding us in our practice. We have an interest in the Buddhadharma, the intelligence to understand it and the ability to integrate it into our daily life.
“Right now, at this very moment, we can completely change our life. Giving up the preoccupation with worldly pleasure that keeps us trapped in suffering. Cultivating the mind that actively destroys the mental afflictions that are the cause of our suffering. Now is the time to study and meditate on the lam rim, to actualize bodhicitta, to practice the six perfections, to meditate on emptiness and understand the nature of reality. "
In this book, Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains in detail how precious the perfect human rebirth is and why we shouldn't waste a second of it.
This volume represents a fundamental resource. Both for those who meditate and strive to attain lam-rim realizations, and for those who teach the stages of the path ... But also for all those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the Buddha's teachings and how they are of benefit to all beings.
