If you are able to generate bodhicitta, it will be the cause of every happiness for yourself and others, and all the suffering you encounter in your daily life will be dispelled. Whether we and our fellow beings experience happiness or suffering, whether we have peace or violence in the world, depends entirely on the condition of our minds. The mind is what determines whether there will be happiness or suffering; our states of mind are what makes our actions negative or positive. Therefore, may those who have not already generated this excellent and precious noble mind work very hard to develop it. May those who have already generated bodhichitta try their best not to impair it, working hard to increase love and compassion so that it continues to grow.
