Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but very few understand how to accomplish this effectively in daily life. Through improving our compassion we will develop a special mind that wishes to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, known as bodhichitta. With bodhichitta we become a Bodhisattva, a friend of the world, and are able to transform all our daily activities into skilful methods that benefit others.

‘How are we able to measure the infinite, unfathomable merit of this precious jewel-like mind? Is there any wonder comparable to the birth of the precious bodhichitta within our mind?’
