Eight unfree states; Eight states into which we can be reborn. They are: rebirth as a hell being, rebirth as a hungry ghost, rebirth as an animal, rebirth as an ordinary god, rebirth in a country where there is no religion, rebirth where there is no Buddhadharma, rebirth with mental or physical disability, and rebirth as one who holds wrong views denying Dharma. They are called `unfree states because they allow no freedom for spiritual practice. kadampa.org
