If you receive empowerment, it’s about bodhicitta. If you receive teachings, it’s about bodhicitta. If you practice teachings, it’s about bodhicitta.
Everything comes down to bodhicitta. The essence of practice is about bodhicitta.
If you are truly my student, then you will not generate hatred and anger even toward a person who comes to kill me. If you do, then I will have failed as your teacher! If it is his karma to kill and my karma to die, so be it, but as Garchen Rinpoche’s student, you must not lose your bodhicitta and must continue to develop love and compassion for this person.
