I made the appropriate preparations for meditation and then went through all the meditation objects in the great scope leading to Bodhichitta.
I quickly developed equanimity, and remembered the kindness of all mother beings. Feeling grateful, I remembered the disadvantages of self cherishing and the benefits of cherishing others. I reinforced my wish to exchange self with others. Now what? I care only about others and I see they cannot find happiness and they suffer. I instantly want to do something. I mounted taking and giving on the breath for a while and then resolved to attain the ability to actually help living beings.
May all living beings develop the precious supreme Bodhichitta. Once developed, may it not decrease, but flourish forevermore.
