【A Human Life of Leisure and Opportunity】 – A human life that is difficult to attain even in ten million eons.
【Also the Descent into the Womb Sutra (Garbhavakranti-sutra) states:
Even though you have been born a human with such limitless suffering, you still have the best of situations. It is difficult to attain this even in ten million eons. 】
En! True cultivations all rely on being a human. But even if you have been born a human, there could be “limitless suffering”. Ah, there is no real peace and happiness in the six realms! But this (the human realm) is a truly excellent place! How excellent is it? “It is difficult to attain this human life even in ten million eons.” It is so difficult to attain a human life! Needless to say a human life of leisure and opportunity, even those who do not have leisure and opportunity, even to be those people without leisure and opportunity, it is extremely difficult, extremely difficult to attain! Actually when we take a look, we’ll know. Now we have more than 4 billion people in the world, may I ask you, how many have met up with Buddhism? Of those who have met up with the teaching, how many believe in it and is in touch with it? For the ones who are in touch with and believe [the teaching], how many actually practice accordingly? If you go into this deeply one step after another, then you will find that it may be less than 1/100,000,000. This is absolutely true!
