How Mental States Affect Rebirth

Written by Shen Shi'an

If one’s mind is predominant with greed,
one is likely to be reborn as a hungry ghost.

If one’s mind is predominant with hatred,
one is likely to be reborn as a hell-being.

If one’s mind is predominant with ignorance,
one is likely to be reborn as an animal.

The three poisons when intense,
lead to rebirth in the negative realms.

If one’s mind is predominant with Buddha,
one is likely to be reborn as a Buddhaland being.

The mindfulness of Buddha when strong,
leads to rebirth in the pure realm of Buddha.
