In any case, whether we are experiencing pain or pleasure, happiness or suffering, we must always hold sentient beings in the corner of our mind and heart. In this way, we can aim gradually, step by step, towards the enlightenment that brings with it a buddha’s complete omniscience. Once we have reached that goal, this is not when our work ends, but when the real work of benefiting beings takes place.
