The purpose of this meditation is to generate a feeling of having taken all the sufferings of others, and that we have destroyed all our own suffering too.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for mediation, and then began by visualising all the sufferings of other living beings maifested as black smoke, which came into my heart and destroyed my self-cherishing.

I understood that all living beings were now permanently free from suffering, and that because my self-cherishing mind had been destroyed, I was free from suffering also.

I focused on this feeling of freedom and joy, and meditated on it for the rest of the session.

Dedication

May all living beings be free from their suffering, and my I develop the ability to free them from their sufferings permanently.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will try not to be such a miserable old git and focus on others’ freedom from suffering
