Power of Bodhicitta


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.

-- Shantideva
