The purpose of this meditation is to generate that wish to become a Buddha for the benefit of all living beings.

I made the appropriate preparations for meditation and then started by contemplating my own Buddha nature. Within us all we hold the seed of a Buddha. Through the blessings of the holy beings and through our own actions we ripen this Buddha nature.

I have always envied women in that they can give birth. As I thought about my Buddha nature I realised that I can give birth as well. Just as the mother nourishes her baby until it is time to give birth so can I too nourish my Buddha nature until it becomes a fully fledged Buddha.

My ordinary body and mind cannot become a Buddha. But they can give birth to a Buddha. This Buddha will have the power to protect all living beings throughout all their lives.

Through this contemplation I developed a strong wish to develop my Buddha nature until I give birth to a Buddha. I focused on this wish is my object of meditation.
