“So, instead of calling for the boddhisattvas to help as external beings by literally externalizing them to internalize them YOU through their enligtened mind help sentient brings such as crabs.”

Oh wow that hit me hard. Now I’m more relieved haha

On that note, I reccomemd the book 'The Heart of Compassion: The Thirty- Seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva : A Commentary on the Thirty-Seven-Fold Practice of a Bodhisattva by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche'. Imo, any of his texts are an excellent introduction to the Mahayana view and attitude.
