The Greatest Waste

“Time that has passed and gone without us having done anything useful or beneficial for ourselves, in a life in which we have been born in this world and encountered these teachings of the Buddha, leaves us with a life that is an incredible waste...

Time, even a single minute, that passes us by in that way – even huge piles of money can't buy it back. Thus, of things that are a waste in this world, what waste can compare to letting our days and our time pass us by without any benefit, even if only a minute?”
