“Courageously begin your meditation with a very uplifted state of mind that is filled with bodhichitta: the sincere wish to help all beings be free of suffering and attain enlightenment. After taking refuge in the buddhas and the enlightened nature of yourself and all beings, practice with mindfulness, joy, and appreciation, as well as compassion and kindness for everyone—including yourself.”
