Rebirth is a very useful way to review our life, to reflect on our relationships, and to gain perspective on what is important. This talk is about how deep, beautiful meditation can reveal the truth of things, and also how deep, beautiful meditation can be fun. Rebirth is a reality which can be found out for yourself through the practice of meditation. Ordinary memory is unreliable, real memory through meditation is true. Regarding rebirth, we gain a solid ground for being good and responsible, and take long term perspective on the trials and tribulations of one life in comparison to the trials and tribulations of one year in school or one year in the office.
