Contemplation: Leading...

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:
The Tathagatas of past, present, and future intrinsically lead sentient beings to be exposed to the Buddha's knowledge and insight and attain the patience which comes from [realizing the truth of] non-arising.  [The Buddha] appears in this world due to the conditioned co-arising of his great deeds.
Great Master Chih-i, quoted in Paul L. Swanson's Foundations of T'ien-T'ai Philosophy, p. 248.
