“Perfect buddhahood is born from the thought of benefiting others.”
~Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
”Bodhicitta, the intention to realize enlightenment for the benefit of others, frees you from attachment to yourself, frees you from attachment to others, and frees you from attachment to freedom itself. Genuine compassion is infused with detachment. This is how you cultivate the motivation to enlighten without any hope or expectation.”
Keep in mind the many beings who are suffering in the same way as you are, and pray that your suffering may absorb theirs and that they may be liberated from all suffering. In this way, illness can teach us compassion.
~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Simply let experience take place very freely, so that your open heart is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion.
Look into the awakened mind of your own awareness! It has neither form nor color, neither center nor edge. At first, it has no origin but is empty. Next, it has no dwelling place but is empty. At the end, it has no destination but is empty. This emptiness is not made of anything and is clear and cognizant. When you see this and recognize it, you know your natural face. You understand the nature of things. You have then seen the nature of mind, resolved the basic state of reality and cut through doubts about topics of knowledge. This awakened mind of awareness is not made out of any material substance; it is self-existing and inherent in yourself. This is the nature of things that is easy to realize because it is not to be sought for elsewhere. This is the nature of mind that does not consist of a concrete perceiver and something perceived to fixate on. It defies the limitations of permanence and annihilation. In it there is no thing to awaken; the awakened state of enlightenment is your own awareness that is naturally awake. In it there is no thing that goes to the hells; awareness is naturally pure. In it there is no practice to carry out; its nature is naturally cognizant. This great view of the natural state is present in yourself: resolve that it is not to be sought for elsewhere.
~ Guru Rinpoche
All Meditation must begin with arousing deep compassion. Whatever one does must emerge from an attitude of love and benefitting others.
