Treasure this Precious Human Birth

1.00

In Buddhist philosophy, human existence is precious. The Buddha said that the chances of being born human are infinitesimally small: Imagine that there is a blind tortoise swimming in an ocean as large as the planet. The tortoise surfaces every 100 years. Suppose an ox's yoke is afloat on the waves.  The chances of being born human are no better than those of the tortoise surfacing with her head in the yoke.

I made the "precious human birth" mini poster in response to that story, remembering and celebrating our human abilities to love and laugh and enjoy beauty.
