Shantideva Verses 18 and 19

For when, with irreversible intent,

The mind embraces bodhicitta,

Willing to set free the endless multitudes of beings,

In that instant, from that moment on,

 

A great unremitting stream,

A strength of wholesome merit,

Even during sleep and inattention,

Rises equal to the vastness of the sky.
