Human birth and a turtle – El nacimiento humano y la tortuga


 
The Lord (Buddha) has said that human birth is exceedingly hard to win; hard as for a turtle to pass its neck into the hole of a yoke in the ocean.

Santi-deva

 

…………………………………………………………….

El Señor Buda ha dicho que conseguir un nacimiento humano es extremadamente raro; tan raro como que el cuello de una tortuga pase por el agujero de un yugo flotando en el océano.

– Santideva
