Sadly, we are reminded daily that life in our modern world is cheap. But, what IS the value of human life?
Buddha taught that human life is the most advantageous platform by which to obtain freedom and omniscience.
A human life is rare and precious.
It is precious when it presents the opportunity to attain liberation from suffering. Having a precious human body, one has the chance each moment to practice virtue, the means towards attaining enlightenment. The possibilities are boundless. But, one must first recognize this form, realize its great value and rarity, then use it accordingly to benefit oneself and others.
What are these precious qualities? How do we recognize, strengthen and use them?
