THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF HUMAN LIFE

Vedic scriptures proclaim that out of 84 Lakhs (8.4 million) species born on earth, human birth is the rarest and the most precious as only human birth gives valuable opportunity for spiritual enlightenment and liberation (breaking free from the repeated and painful cycle of birth and death). Sri Adi Shankaracharya in his work Vivekacūdāmani begins his discourse by saying jantūnām narajanma durlabham’ – of all the creatures, human birth is the rarest.
