【A human life of leisure and opportunity – It is so rare and precious for Buddha to be born in this world】
Buddha has spent countless eons [asaṅkhyākalpas] to give away his heads, eyes, brains and marrows, and the benefits are given to others. So what we should learn from here is that this is not easy! Then with the collections he accumulated from giving away his heads, eyes, brains and marrows, he still dedicated it to others. So we must think from this perspective, must think from this perspective! All the good things are given to others. Now is it enough to only have Buddha? Not enough! There needs to be a lot of disciples, a huge group of people, we do not know how many people had worked so hard such that Buddha could appear in the world!
