Cycle of Samsara

Samsara – the cycle of rebirth that keeps beings revolving around continually from life to life, ever placing them in the way of danger and suffering, while offering only faint and fleeting pleasures as a distraction. It’s also a word that means ‘the World’ in the common sense of endless work, effort and ultimately failure in sickness and death.

Wiki Definition:

Samsara (Sanskrit: ) is the cycle of birth, death and rebirth (i.e. reincarnation) within Buddhism, Bön, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Vaishnavism and other Indian religions. Colloquially, “Samsara” can also refer to a general state of overt or subtle sufferings that occur in day to day life.

or more colloquially :: life just keeps spinning you round and round, until the sheer momentum of it throws you about.

Kind of like the hamster’s wheel that you can’t get off.

At least not easily … hehe :
