The purpose of this meditation is to generate the precious mind of bodhichitta.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then began by thinking about how all beings around me are actually my kind mothers from past lives. During those lives they cared for me more than they cared for themselves. Now we see each other but we don’t remember our special relationship. I thought about how grateful I am for their kindness and how I wish I could repay their kindness. Then I thought about how I wish I could free them from their suffering. My own suffering is almost irrelevant in comparison to the sufferings of all living beings.

How can I actually free them from suffering? I must become an enlightened being, with a clear light of inner wisdom, and the power to bless the minds of all living beings continually. Only in this way will I be able to fully repay the kindness of others.

I focused on the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings for the rest of the meditation.


May all living beings enter the lineage and become sons or daughters of the Buddhas.
