February 24 : Many Ways to Dedicate the Merit

To remove the suffering of limitless beings, understanding the purity of the three spheres, dedicate the virtue from making such effort to awakening. This is the practice of Bodhisattvas. 

We dedicate the merit from our virtue whenever we practise. We can dedicate through the method aspect of the path by compassionately working to remove the suffering of all sentient beings and supporting their awakening. We can also dedicate through the wisdom side of the path if we practise with an awareness of the emptiness and dependence arising of the person creating the merit, the merit created, the awakening being who is dedicating, and the sentient beings receiving the dedication. Dedicating to the highest goal of awakening makes our merit very strong and ensures it will not get exhausted until all sentient beings have been awakened.
