“Aspiration and dedication prayers are so important. We started this practice with a good heart and good thoughts, practiced with a good heart and concentration according to our best capabilities, and now we’re concluding with the same good heart and good thoughts. In this way, the beginning is good, the middle is good, and the end is good, so it must be good! It looks good, smells good, sounds good, tastes good, feels good—it must be good! This is what good practice is all about. We can be happy and joyful when we leave our cushion—we used our time for something really good. Now we can swing and dance and jump through the meadow!”
