Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The teachings on Chapter 7 of Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way explore the reasons and methods for giving up attachment to the fleeting pleasures of cyclic existence.

  • Targeting the disadvantages of cyclic existence
  • Having a sense of danger (caution) and of fear, wisdom fear
  • Without a wish to get free of cyclic existence we won’t practice the path
  • If we don’t practice the path we will continue to be reborn in cyclic existence
  • The causes of cyclic existence
  • Act so the present and the future will not be as meaningless as the past
