The Perihelion Effect

I have a precious human life

“Every day, think as you wake up; today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. 

I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. 

I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. 

I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”  

 – Lama Zopa
