Ancient texts say that being born on Earth as a human being is a blessing. It is not an easy process but the rewards are many. The experience gained from the cyclic process of birth and death, the opportunity to exhaust one’s karma and the chance to free oneself from that same process are gifts that are offered to a soul that chooses the human experience.
Additionally, every person is born with certain karmic debts. Amongst them, the debt each person owes to his or her ancestors can be diminished by begetting good children. In this way, the hopes and existence of the ancestors lives on through the children, offering them a kind of immortality through posterity.
Having understood that human birth is a very rare privilege we should accept the fact that pregnancy and childbirth are the two indispensable events of human life.
