The Four Reminders or the Four Thoughts: Preliminaries of Lojong Practice.
(1) Maintain an awareness of the preciousness of human life.~ Atiśa from A Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment
(2) Be aware of the reality that life ends; death comes for everyone; Impermanence.
(3) Recall that whatever you do, whether virtuous or not, has a result; Karma.
(4) Contemplate that as long as you are too focused on self-importance and too caught up in thinking about how you are good or bad, you will experience suffering. Obsessing about getting what you want and avoiding what you don’t want does not result in happiness; Ego.
