The Infinite Spark of Being

Thoughts on the things I've learned.

This is a simple guided Tonglen meditation. Tonglen is a very important meditation with a very powerful visualization. In Vajrayana Buddhism places a higher emphasis on enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings regardless of the situation. Blind compassion to all sentient beings. This mean everyone. Even those doing us harm because ewe know that they too are suffering and probably suffering much more than we are. Even things that might seem selfish to someone else are done with purpose of the enlightenment of all. At the end of all practice we dedicate any merit we may have received spiritually to all sentient beings that they may reap the benefits of our practice.
