The purpose of this meditation is to generate the strong feeling of being on a path to enlightenment.

path in woodsI began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then settled my mind by mixing it with Tranquility, Clarity and Bliss.

I then moved on to thinking about Bodhichitta. ‘Through the virtues I collect by giving and other perfections, may I become a Buddha for the benefit of all.’ As I contemplated these words it became clear to me that my actions ARE my path. The path is not separate from my actions, but one and the same. In meditation, this point became very clear, and I focused on it. My conclusion was that I will be able to travel the path every moment because I am creating actions every moment. I determined to create positive actions with the intention to become a Buddha for the benefit of all. It was wonderful!

Dedication

May all living beings experience the clarity of mind of a Buddha.
