The purpose of this meditation is to develop the intention to act purely and avoid non-virtue.

With faith, we can believe that all our actions lay down imprints in our mind which later ripen as experiences once the appropriate conditions have arisen.

I contemplated:

I myself never wish for suffering, and always want happiness. Therefore I must cease and purify my negative actions, and only engage in positive and virtuous actions.

I focused on this wish, and felt myself become someone who only acts in virtuous ways, and who therefore experiences happiness all the time.

Dedication

May all living beings understand the law of karma, and reap the benefits of this understanding.
