【Aspiration】- To attain Buddhahood in order to benefit all sentient beings
“I want to learn to be like Buddha too.” You can follow and recollect accordingly in this way and say, “I hope to be like Buddha, the one I recollect, rely and go for refuge. I wish to attain this (his good qualities) too.” What is this? This is developing the spirit of enlightenment. So what is spirit of enlightenment? May I attain Buddhahood in order to benefit all sentient beings! Hmm, in order to alleviate the sufferings of all sentient beings, I want to obtain Buddhahood too. This is the spirit of enlightenment. So from the beginning you are in concordance with it when you go for refuge.
