Human life ~ 17th Karmapa

Whether or not we believe in reincarnation, we can each live a purposeful life if we spend our time doing something beneficial for ourselves and others. At the very least, we need to find a way to lead our lives joyfully. But if we do the opposite – what a shame! If we only create misery, we have wasted our lives. What’s more, all the trouble that others have gone through to feed and clothe us becomes pointless.
