~ Lama Gendun Rinpoche
Leave this mind of yours
in its natural state where there is nothing artificial.
In this state, seeing a thought move,
rest on it, relaxed.
In this state, stability will come.
No attachment to stability
no fear of movement,
aware that there is no difference
between stability and movement,
mind arising from mind.
In this state, where there is no grasping, no attachment,
rest natural and relaxed.
In this state, natural reality itself,
the essence of your own mind,
primordial awareness, empty clarity
will arise… and you won't know what to say.
In this state you will settle, suspended and relaxed.
Without grasping at the stability as something,
naturally in place, naturally free ;
without seizing on or rejecting the mind's productions,
please settle… THERE.

“Sariputra, if there are people who have already made the vow, who now make the vow, or who are about to make the vow, ‘I desire to be born in Amitabha’s country,’ these people, whether born in the past, now being born, or to be born in the future, all will irreversibly attain to anuttarasamyaksambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all good men and good women, if they are among those who have faith, should make the vow, ‘I will be born in that country.’”
~ Amitabha Sutra
When I obtain the Buddhahood, any being of the boundless and inconceivable Buddha-worlds of the ten quarters whose body if be touched by the rays of my splendour should not make his body and mind gentle and peaceful, in such a state that he is far more sublime than the gods and men, then may I not attain the enlightenment.
~ Amitabha Buddha's Thirty-Third Vow
