Supreme Motivation

Before listening to the teachings, please give rise to the supreme motivation of bodhicitta.  

For the benefit of all sentient beings, who are as limitless in number as the sky is vast in its extent, we aim to attain the state of buddhahood, which falls neither into the extreme of existence nor the extreme of peace.  

In order to do this, we know that we must listen to, reflect upon, and meditate on the teachings of the genuine dharma with all the enthusiasm we can muster in our hearts. Please give rise to this supreme motivation of bodhicitta and listen.


Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, The Union of Sutra and Tantra, Karme Choling, 2001, p. 40.
