Is life a blessing or anguish?

 There is a saying that humans come with empty hands and go with empty hands (空手 來 空手 去). This means not to be greedy for wealth. In other words, they bring nothing when they are born, and they take nothing when they die. But the truth is a little different from this statement. Human beings are born with the qualities made through what existed in previous lives. And when they die they go with the qualities changed through what exists in the present life. That is, there are things to bring and take. From this fact we can see why we should live right.
