How to Direct Your Compassion.
The mighty Buddhas, pondering for many ages,
Have seen that this (bodhicitta), and only this, will save
The boundless multitudes,
And bring them easily to supreme joy.
Those who wish to overcome the sorrows of their lives,
And put to flight the pain and sufferings of beings,
Those who wish to win such great beatitude,
Should never turn their back on bodhicitta.
Except for Perfect Bodhicitta
Thus behold the utter frailty of goodness.
Except for perfect bodhicitta,
There is nothing able to withstand
The massive strength of evil.
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." – Buddha.
