Today’s Lamrim Quote (1 December 2013)

Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen (1570–1662)

Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen (1570–1662)

“Next, for the practice of ethical discipline, while meditating the master-deity on your head, reflect in the following manner: For the sake of all sentient beings, my mothers, may I quickly attain complete and perfect Buddhahood. For that purpose may I give up wrongful deeds that conflict with whatever vows I have taken, like the vow to abstain from the ten non-virtues. May I generate in my mind the six perfections, generosity and so forth, and the excellent virtue of ethical discipline and so on that I have yet to achieve, and may the good qualities that I already have be enhanced. May I lead all sentient beings to the excellent virtue of ethical discipline and so forth, and establish them in the path of progress and liberation. Master-deity, please bless me so that I may be able to do so.”
