Seven Causal Links of Enlightenment

Perfect enlightenment arises from the awakening mind (bodhichitta).

Awakening mind arises from a pure and excellent aspiration.

Pure aspiration arises from great compassion.

Great compassion arises from great love.

Great love arises from affection for sentient beings.

Affection for sentient beings arises from appreciation and gratitude.

Appreciation and gratitude arise from the perception that sentient beings are our benefactors.

—Jetsun Taranatha, paraphrasing Master Atisha
