Generating the Bodhimind by Lochen Tulku

When you have generated the Bodhimind, the activities or whatever you do this is influenced by the Bodhimind that all becomes the cause for enlightenment. Since all the merits that we earn, all the virtuous actions that we accumulate may not necessary become the cause for enlightenment as I mentioned mostly they are not going to be the cause for enlightenment.

But once the Bodhimind is with you, your activities are influenced by this mind and by the power of this mind all the merits you earn from that moment become the cause for enlightenment. That means, once the merits becomes the cause for enlightenment then you can enjoy the results and enjoy the fruits till you get enlightenment.

Because we might have accumulated a lot of merits but then once they give the good results then they are exhausted no more results will be there. But if your merits are influenced by the Bodhimind then that can never end till enlightenment. Therefore, it is a powerful instrument to accumulate merits.

Beautiful yet simple teaching on something so profound, Bodhichitta is certainly our best friend. :smile:
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.
