Bodhicitta is the moon of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the sun of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the jewel of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the nectar of the mind.
– Khunu Rinpoche

it dispels the two opposites of being and non-being,
A marvel has appeared in the mid-sky- Behold!
O Bhusuku, the own-form of simultaneously arisen bliss!
