The Three Excellences
Firstly, it is very important for practitioners to have as their foundation the practices of love, compassion, and bodhichitta, or the mind of enlightenment, which transforms any action into a meaningful and beneficial one. Secondly, everything in our lives has the nature of impermanence and emptiness. Thus, applying these concepts in our everyday activities will help us prevent the arising of destructive emotions, which are the main cause of misery. Finally, regardless of how large or small, from our hearts, we should dedicate the merit cultivated from whatever virtuous actions and practices we have undertaken to the welfare of all sentient beings. This will guarantee that the merit is not exhausted until we attain Buddhahood for the sake of all beings.
We should engage in these three excellences in every action we undertake
