The purpose of this meditation was to increase my confidence in my ability to progress along and complete the path to enlightenment.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation, and then focused on faith in my Spiritual Guide. He is with me in my heart and I can call upon him at all times. He has all the wisdom, compassion and spiritual power of all the Buddhas. He is delighted to share it with me if I request it.

So long as I have my Spiritual Guide at my heart, I can achieve all my goals – I can fulfil all my wishes.

I focused on this thought, and shared his ocean-like peaceful, still mind for the rest of the meditation.

Dedication

Through the virtues I have collected, may all living beings be freed from their suffering quickly and without delay.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will try to maintain the awareness of my Guru at my heart all day.
