For the Sake of One Being

The thought struck me this morning that, if I were able to be of benefit to even one hell being in a future rebirth in hell, wouldn’t it be worth it? I went about looking for a similar sentiment and found it in the Guru Puja.

As it says in the Guru Puja:

Even if I must remain for an ocean of eons in the fiery hells of Avici 
For the sake of even just one sentient being,
I seek your blessings to complete the perfection of joyous effort,
To strive with compassion for supreme enlightenment and not be discouraged.
