The purpose of this meditation is to practise generating a very stable concentrated mind.
I chose Bodhichitta as my object of Tranquil Abiding because in the example 7-day Lamrim retreat described by Geshe-la in Appendix IV of The New Meditation Handbook, Bodhichitta is suggested as the object for the Tranquil Abiding meditation. (How wonderful it would be to have the opportunity to practice four sessions of this meditation on the same day!).
I generated Bodhichitta in the same way that I did yesterday in my meditation, then I focused on mixing my mind with the feeling completely. I became Bodhichitta. Bodhichitta was all I could see and feel. I was completely mixed with Bodhichitta – I was Bodhichitta.
I kept this recognition for the whole of the meditation, and when I detected that my mind was losing this feeling, I renewed it by reminding myself of the feeling. I let it fill me again and again. It was superb. Joy after Joy.
May all living beings practice Tranquil Abiding and generate completely stable and pure minds, filled with love, compassion and Bodhichitta. May they all become Enlightened Beings.
Practice in the meditation break
I will try to keep my mind mixed with Bodhichitta, and everything I see, touch and think about will be mixed with this precious mind.
