In general, all the teachings to be practiced are considered trainings in generating bodhichitta. But in particular, the trainings in the bodhichitta of aspiration are not to abandon concern for sentient beings through keeping their benefit in mind, to gather the accumulation(s) and cultivate the four immeasurables, and to adopt the four white and avoid the four black deeds.
