The Thirty-Seven Practices of A Bodhisattva

Week 1

First Practice
  1. The practice of all the Bodhisattva's is to study, reflect and meditate, Tirelessly, day and night, without ever straying into idleness. In order to free oneself and others from this ocean of samsara.
    Having gained this supreme vessel—of a free, well-favoured human life, so difficult to find.

Whatever lifestyle we might have, 
we need to put full effort towards 
practicing the Dharma day and night 
with good motivation, even before we sleep. When you do sleep do it for the benefit of others.

Wakeup for the benefit of others; go about your day for the benefit of others.

Whatever actions of body, speech and mind that are done, base it on Dharma and the purpose of benefiting others. But to practice something requires one to first acquire the knowledge. 

Which explains the very first words of advice given, the practice of all Bodhisattva's is to study, contemplate and meditate.
