'Goodbye Samsara, Hello Nibbana'

  1. 1. Goodbye Samsara, Hello Nibbana PBHP 14 th Dhamma Youth Camp 2006
  2. 2. “ Goodbye Samsara, Hello Nibbana” Reflections on the Theme Let us walk the Spiritual Path to rid the mind of the defilements of Greed, Hatred and Delusion. These forces of evil cause us the pain and suffering in life. When the defilements of the mind are destroyed, then perfect happiness, peace and bliss are attained. The mind is liberated and Nibbana is realized. To be born as a human being is a rare and precious Gift. This is likened to a blind turtle in the vast ocean coming up to the surface once in a very long, long time, and trying to poke its head through a yoke floating randomly in the ocean. We must value our precious human existence and lead a worthy life … one of Virtue, Love, Compassion and Wisdom.
