"The lamp of the Bodhi Mind takes the great compassion as its oil, takes
great vows as its wick, and takes great wisdom as its illumination. " At the
point of death, this wealth, power and position will all depart into
emptiness. Death is a certainty for every single one of us.

The unfolding of this life is a result of seeds planted in past life times
and the fruit of future rebirths will  result from the seeds of compassion,
vows and wisdom planted in this life.  Cultivate the Bodhi Mind now during
this wonderful human rebirth. There is no reason to wait.
