When you focus on praying with the heart of total devotion and trust in the Buddha by enjoying his loving-kindness, then before long, unconditional love—the Buddha’s blessings and loving-kindness—will take birth in you. You become what you are seeing, hearing, and feeling. As a popular proverb has it, “When you see the face of a laughing person, you too will start laughing. When you see the face of a crying person, you too will start crying.”
As an indication of developing loving-kindness in your mindstream, you could suddenly experience an indescribable heat with joyfulness or blissfulness. Tears of joy might stream from your eyes. You could feel every hair of your body rising with a sense of celebrating the new birth of bodhichitta in you.
