The Sanskrit word samsara means “journeying.” In Buddhism, as well as in Hinduism and Jainism, samsara is defined as a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
In the Catholic tradition we often recite “Christ has died. Christ has risen, Christ will come again. The is the Easter mystery, this is what Lent leads to. Lent is the journey to prepare the way. We are in fact experiencing samsara.
… have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
and to try to love the questions themselves
as if they were locked rooms or books written
in a very foreign language.
Don’t search for the answers,
which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~
