Contemplation: I Will Abide and Train

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:

Just as all the Buddhas of the past
Embraced the awakened attitude aof mind,
And in the precepts of the bodhisattvas
Step by step abode and trained,

Just so, and for the benefit of beings,
I will also have this attitude of mind,
And in those precepts, step by step,
I will abide and train myself.

Santideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva, p. 52
