Chapter 15 - The Practice Of One's Sake

To the wise man therefore, the life he lives here is a very valuable and golden opportunity to rid himself of the burden which he has accumulated in the past; to rid himself of his wrong doings, wrong views and wrong concepts of life and death, and dispelling them away all behind, to attain the highest blissful peak of life, Nibbana.

Without attainment of the final goal of Nibbana, we are sure to go again to the effect of our causation as long as we condition our activities. Such a round of our activities and their results is called the wheel of life (Samsara )- the whole mass of sufferings.
