The purpose of this meditation was to generate a perfect intention throughout all my actions.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation, and then thought about all the suffering in the world. Every day on the internet and in my own life I see how people and animals are suffering. These are not disconnected entities – they Buddhaare my kind mothers, who have been so kind to me in the past and still facilitate my life today. I thought about how I wish them to be free from their suffering, and how I wish that they could find permanent happiness.

How can I achieve this? I can achieve this by becoming a Buddha with omniscient wisdom – a being that can know and help every single living being constantly. I willed myself to become such a being.

After a while I thought about what this means in my daily life. I need to mix all my actions with the six perfections. This will by my life from now until I attain enlightenment. I must maintain a perfect intention to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others throughout all my actions. I focused on this wish for the rest of the meditation.

Dedication

May all living beings be freed from their suffering quickly and without delay.

Practice in the Meditation Break
