But what is Right Motivation ?

The Motivation for Withdrawal:

Being motivated by a general absence of greed, craving, & desire!Being motivated to generous giving by relinquishing possessiveness.Being motivated to detach from the five sense-desires of urge for alluring and tempting sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touches...
Being motivated to cut attachment to the five clusters of Clinging
to forms, feelings, perceptions, constructions and consciousness...
Such radical renunciation is Right Motivation!

The Motivation for Non-Ill-Will:

Being motivated by universal friendliness, infinite goodwill, care,
non-anger, hatelessness & a sympathy wishing and working for all
sentient being's happiness, content, comfort, benefit & welfare...
Such gentle kindness is Right Motivation!

The Motivation for Harmlessness:

Being motivated by absolute non-violence, absence of cruelty, & by
compassionate pity, thereby offering all sentient beings guaranteed
safety & protection from any evil, painful, bad or wrong treatment...
Such giving of fearlessness is Right Motivation!

The opposites of these advantageous intentions is Wrong Motivation...
