We need a non-stopping Lineage of the teachings coming from Buddha up to us

There is the mind lineage of the Buddhas, the symbol lineage of the Vidyadharas, and the oral lineage of individuals – these three groups have their own ways of to teach. Buddhas had their own ways of teaching to each other. And Vidyadharas also have their unique way of teaching. And also, ordinary people like us, we have our own way to receive teachings and to teach to others. So, there are three ways of giving the instructions of the nature of the mind on the emptiness. So, because of those three ways, there are three Lineages. The Lineage – it should be unbroken lineage for the teachings of the Buddha, of the five Buddha’s families, of Padmasambhava or Guru Rinpoche. But we need a non-stopping Lineage. The way or the source of the teachings coming from Buddha up to us without being broken is called Lineage, like Longchen Nyingthig Lineage. This goes up to like Buddha Samantabhadra here, and five Buddha families, and Vidyadharas like Garab Dorje and Guru Rinpoche, and down to us through these different great, compassionate masters. Because of their compassion, their wisdom, their practice, they are able to hold these teachings until now without being broken.
