How to Destroy the Cycle of Suffering 

Buddha Shakyamuni Empowerment and teachings on the Wheel of Life 

Even if we contemplate deeply the most sublime paintings and works of art we cannot gain benefits that compare with the benefits of contemplating and meditating on the diagram of the Wheel of Life. This is because this diagram reveals the complete path to liberation and enlightenment. 

With Dharma wisdom, if we contemplate and meditate on the meaning of this diagram we can gain many experiences and realizations of the stages of the path. We can destroy the cycle of suffering, enter into the path to liberation, abandon all delusions and learn to cherish others.
