5 Things Buddhists Should Contemplate Every Day

Whether you are a life-long Buddhist or new to the religion, Buddha advised that we should contemplate the following five things every day:

  1.  I am aging and will continue to age. I have not gone beyond aging;
  2.  I will get sick. I have not gone beyond getting sick;
  3.  I will eventually die. I have not gone beyond dying;
  4.  All that is mine, beloved and pleasing will eventually become separated from me; and
  5. I am the owner of my Karma. Whatever Karma I shall do, for good or bad, I shall own the results of my intentional actions. Karma is supporting us and we have to be careful about our Karma.
