From “The Thirty Seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva“, verse 10, Developing Bodhicitta.
“From beginningless time your mothers have cherished you,
If they now suffer, what good is your own happiness?
Therefore, in order to liberate limitless sentient beings,
Giving rise to bodhicitta is the practice of a Bodhisattva.”
