Saṃsāra

(Sanskrit; Pāli, flowing on)  The cycle of repeated birth and death that individuals undergo until they attain nirvāṇa.  The cycle, like the universe, is believed to have no beginning or end and individuals transmigrate from one existence to the next in accordance with their karma or moral conduct.  Blinded by the three roots of evil (akuśala-mūla), namely greed, hatred, and delusion, beings are said to wander in saṃsāra until such time as they are fortunate enough to hear the Dharma and put it into practice.
