Samsara - Gharwang Rinpoche

Samsara is one of the well-known words but hardly anyone appreciates. Samsara literally means “cyclic existence.”

Once we are trapped, then freedom becomes just another distant dream, because birth, old age, sickness and death are the usual pattern of the so called samsara. However, there is a great deal of knowledge we can acquire by understanding its function. For instance, every day we go through changes, ups and downs, and sadly and surely, we also have to face aging and death of our love ones, not excluding oneself. We can certainly say that nobody wishes or wants to see things happen in the most painful manner to anyone but no one has the power to stop such situation. As long as we know that this is part of the function of samsara and it is not something that just happens or that someone has cursed us. Therefore, a little knowledge may be dangerous but understanding does help us to overcome fear, uncertainty and definitely enlighten us while we are in samsara, so as to be happy and temporarily find a safe haven.
