The four foundations, also known as the four thoughts for turning the mind toward spiritual practice/Dharma provides a motivational spark to ignite one’s meditation and practice. These four thoughts are contemplated before any Buddhist practice to focus the mind and ensure a successful outcome.These reflections are:

  • The benefits of a precious human life
  • Death and impermanence
  • Karma – action, their cause and effect
