    dear Rinpoche, I find these stanzas very beautiful and they give such a powerful sense of compassion but I am not sure that I quite understand how they arise from the dedication of mind training. Does this refer to mind training as in The Seven Points of Mind Training? If so, when Shantideva wrote the Bodhicharyavatara would he have known this text?
    thank you,
