Contemplation: Hells in this world

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:

Therefore, individual beings create their own karma by their own acts, but if their karma is the same as other beings' karma, they will all fall into the same hells in this world.  These hells are created by their deluded acts of mind. Apart from those acts, the hells have no independent existence.

Surangama Sutra, page 363
