The precious human birth

"The Buddha gave a teaching known as "the precious human birth", in which he described how rare and precious it is to take birth as a human in the vast cosmological scheme, and how as a human it is so rare and precious to experience just the right mixture of pleasure and pain to undertake deep spiritual inquiry.

 

Bombamviglia flower | Crete | GreeceIf there is too much pain in our lives, then we are overcome, perhaps needing to concentrate solely on how to survive each day. If there is too much pleasure, then we may get lazy and not have the motivating spark to look for meaning in our life", writes Sharon Salzberg in Loving-Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness (p.111).

Today, how precious do we take this special human life to be? And how precious do we consider the perfect mixture of pleasure and pain we ourselves have been blessed with???
