Why we are still here

The only reason why we are still here,
is because we believe there is a reason to be here.

So why are we still swimming in the sea of samsara?


Seeing the Clear Light

All beings that have lived and died and been reborn coutless times.
Over and over again they have experienced the indescribable Clear Light.
But because they are obscured by the darkness of ignorance,
they wander endlessly in samsara.



In Buddhism,
rebirth is part of the continuous process of change.

In fact,
we are not only reborn at the time of death,
we are born and reborn at every moment.

The Cycle of Karma and Rebirth

With the heavenly eye,
purified and beyond the range of human vision,
I saw how beings vanish and come to be again.

I saw high and low, brilliant and insignificant,
and how each obtained,
according to his karma,
a favorable or painful rebirth.

Gautama Buddha


Why are we born?
We are born so that we will not have to be born again.

Past and Future Lives

If you want to know your past life,
look into your present condition.

If you want to know your future life,
look at your present actions.
