The purpose of this meditation is to develop the sincere wish to practice virtue and avoid non-virtue.

I made the appropriate preparations for meditation and then considered the law of karma. If virtuous actions you rise to pleasant experiences and non-virtuous actions give rise to unpleasant experiences then if I want pleasant experiences in the future I must practice virtue now.

Therefore because I want pleasant experience in the future because it will be easier for me to enlightenment I shall practice virtue now.

Dedication

May all living beings practice virtue, and enter, progress along and finally complete the path of enlightenment.

Practice in the meditation break

I will practice virtue, knowing that I don’t want any trouble in the future.
