The essence of bodhichitta is the heart that thinks,
"I alone, personally, will establish all sentient beings in the state of complete enlightenment."
This is quite a great heart, isn't it?
Whether we are or are not able to establish sentient beings in enlightenment in that way does not matter.
It is first important to think that we are going to do it.
