Heir to the Buddhas.

Should bodhicitta come to birth
In those who suffer, chained in the prison of samsara,
In an instant they are called the children of the Sugatas,
Revered by all the world, by gods and humankind.

I know your situation is tough.  
I know the burden is heavy and the chances seem slim.  
The moment you say, "Enough is enough, I am very fortunate and I must act on it."  
The moment you take your stand
not only for your own benefit, but for the benefit of all beings, 
at that moment you become an heir to the Buddhas.  
You become their child and their master, 
for even the Buddhas are awed by those who give rise to bodhicitta.
