“Visualize the form of the Buddha in that manner. Think that he is actually sitting in your presence, and instantly give rise to bodhichitta. The wisdom form of the Buddha transcends all directions, times and notions of near and far. Therefore, wherever you visualize, he will abide there with certainty."

From the sutras of the Buddha:
"If you bring the Buddha to mind,
He will reside in your presence.
He will always grant you blessings
And will completely liberate you from all faults.”

From the sutras of the Buddha: "Commit not a single unwholesome action, cultivate a wealth of virtue, to tame this mind of ours completely - this is the buddhadharma."
