From the March Shambhala Sun: Sakyong Mipham on “the crown jewel of the mind’s concepts”

The intention to benefit all sentient beings is the best of all thoughts, says Sakyong Mipham in “The Supreme Thought.” Dedicating ourselves to others, we become bodhisattvas.

“At the core of the Mahayana Buddhist teachings is the crown jewel of bodhichitta, the intention to bring all sentient beings to enlightenment. This is the supreme thought, the highest possible concept that the mind can generate. The person who has this intention of becoming awake in order to liberate others is a bodhisattva.”
