Way of the Bodhisattva by 8th Century Master, Shantideva
This well-known and loved text focuses on the cultivation and enhancement of Bodhicitta-a quality of completely open, or completely awakened heart and mind.
Chapter 7 Diligence (Verses 47-End Chapters)
In this second half of the chapter on Diligence, Shantideva begins pointing us in the direction of meditative concentration. Again he stresses the importance of staying with the practice, consistently and gently mindful and awake to emotions like arrogance and pride that can undermine our good efforts and merit. The point is made that with bodhicitta as our goal diligence can be joyfully and carefully maintained.
“Just as flaxen threads waft to and fro,
impelled by every breath of wind,
So all I do will be achieved,
Controlled by movements of a joyful heart
