Obtaining a human birth does not come about by sheer chance. It is the result and the reflection of a great deal of positive and wholesome actions in the past. With such a karmic accumulation, we experience birth as a human being.

The continuity of the existance of human beings depends on families as lay practitioners. In families in all cultures, there is the wish to leave something good and valuable behind for the next generation. Parents try to invest something for the future generation that they, in their own understanding, feel is valuable and meaningful.

This is true even with the most sincere intention to benefit them. On the other hand, if we are able to have some vision of how to take responsibility, not only for the sanity of our personal lives, but, as true Buddhist practitioners with altruistic motivation, for benefiting others, then we can influence the sanity of future generations.
