Thank you! This is perfect. I presume there is no need for lung for this, right?
A boat delivers you to the other riverbank.
A needle stitches up your clothes.
A horse takes you where you want to go.
Bodhicitta will bring you to Buddhahood.

Even non-buddhists have many virtuous accomplishments

I don't know for sure. It came from here: Garchen Dharma Institute, Taiwan

I find this fascinating. So this is a form of self-empowerment? Outside of bodhicitta, is there no requirement for this empowerment since it seems to be a form of "meta" empowerment for other sadhanas?

My guess is, that if there were other requirements, Garchen Rinpoche would have spelled them out.

Hm, asking again because I'm not sure if "requirement" was the right word. I meant to ask if there is an obligation, like a daily formal practice of the sadhana.

I have re-read the transcript and I don't find any practice requirement.

Thank you! I didn't read anything about it either. Just making sure I wasn't missing anything.
