Feeble

Related imageEven as lightning illuminates the darkness of a cloudy night just for an instant, in the same way, by the power of the Buddha, occasionally people’s minds are momentarily inclined toward merit.  Thus, virtue is perpetually ever so feeble.

On the contrary, the power of vice is constant and extremely potent. If there were no Mind of Perfect Awakening (bodhichitta), what virtue could overcome it?

—Shantideva, Bodhicharyavatara
