(310) 388-9710

This is one of the traditional 21 lojong meditations. Its purpose is to develop a fear of being born as one of the lower-realm beings--a hell being, a hungry ghosts or an animal. Having this fear is an attainment that is a step in the process of developing the attainment of committment to practicing Dharma so that one can take a favorable rebirth in one's next life. This latter attainment is known as the "small scope" or "initial scope" intention and is a step on the lam rim path to full Buddhahood that Atisha taught in Tibet.
