According to Rinpoche, the best way to empower something is through the state of contemplation:

གདེང་གྲོལ་ཐོག་ཏུ་བཅའ། །

Yes, you should try to ask Rinpoche more if you get a chance.

Bodhicitta is far more than aspiration or intention. It is the fuel of liberation and liberation itself. Applying bodhicitta in action, intention, and with the wisdom of the ultimate meaning is the ultimate protection for all beings.

Through bodhicitta we have limitless capacity to benefit beings in thought, word, and deed. We also have the ability to inspire them to cultivate bodhicitta themselves and practice dharma in order to become buddhas.
This protection is sincere, authentic, and incapable of being tainted by the 8 worldly concerns. That and no need worry about levitating implements.
:good:
Very eloquently written.
Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

I love these videos of the Master.
The integration with the realities of our circumstances and the teachings is fully present always.
Thank you for posting this here Kevin.
To link this to my previous post about bodhicitta.
The state of contemplation and bodhicitta are the same thing, just different ways of communicating it.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Yes, the maestro is a master of integration.

Sometimes I regret having gone to university... i missed him, but one of his advices was "young practitioners must study" so that i did hahahaha it is tragicomic.

Ok, until here i understood one thing: if the protection works, it is perfect, and if it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Better to try, as i have bein doing with the avalokite and DK amulets, only thing i wan't is to do it right, so have to look after precise explanations on cords.

Thanks!
