The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom

The Lord asked: Which is greater? The little sand on my fingernail, or the great earth?”

“Lord, greater by far is the great earth. Tinny is the sand on your fingernail. The two cannot be compared.”

“So too, being who are reborn as humans are few in number. Far greater are those who are reborn in non-human realms. Therefore, you should train yourself, thinking: “We will live earnestly.”
