Back from the festival. Feeling supercharged. Lets get to work.

The purpose of this meditation is to fire up our determination to complete the path to enlightenment.

I began by making appropriate preparations for meditation, and then brought to mind the following contemplation:

At present I have briefly reached the human world, and I have the opportunity to attain permanent liberation from suffering and the supreme happiness of enlightenment. If I waste this human life in meaningless activities, there is no greater waste, and no greater foolishness.

morpheusI thought deeply about this contemplation, and felt a deep, deep determination to apply dharma to all my daily activities. I want to live a dharma life. I want to move like an unstoppable warrior through my life. Whatever circumstances I meet I will transform into the path to enlightenment. I need fear nothing except death. Everything else makes me stronger. I felt like my Spiritual Guide has blessed me and now I cannot fail. I will complete the path to enlightenment. I will accomplish a Buddha’s enlightenment for the benefit of all living beings. I will use every moment of my precious human life to attain this goal. Nothing will stop me.

I focused on this feeling for the rest of the meditation.

Dedication

May all Kadampas seize this precious human life and the blessings of our Spiritual Guide, and attain enlightenment swiftly for the benefit of all.
