					Quote on Bodhicitta, From The Dalai Lama:


The precious awakening mind of bodhicitta, which cherishes other
sentient beings more than oneself, is the pillar of the bodhisattva’s
practice – the path of the great vehicle.

There is no more virtuous mind than bodhicitta. There is no more
powerful mind than bodhicitta, there is no more joyous mind than
bodhicitta. To accomplish one’s own ultimate purpose, the awakening
mind is supreme. To accomplish the purpose of all other living beings
there is nothing superior to bodhicitta. The awakening mind is the
unsurpassable way to accumulate merit. To purify obstacles bodhicitta
is supreme. For protection from interferences bodhicitta is supreme. It
is the unique and all-encompassing method. Every ordinary and supra-
mundane power can be attained through bodhicitta. Thus it is absolutely
precious.
