So that the warm breath of the teaching's blessing does not vanish

The kind lineage lamas, panditas, and our own lamas have gone through hundreds of thousands of hardships, gained the experience of the secret yana and obtained the signs of success in their minds, so that the warm breath of the teaching’s blessing has not vanished but has been passed from one lama to another. With great love they have poured this into our hearts. This is the result of our accumulation of good karma in previous lives, and we should appreciate its significance.
