As I recall, in summer of this year while I was in Melaka, Malaysia Upasaka Tan, who had followed Guru Chen's lineage for over two decades, commented, "For this group of us followers, we would not leave even if we were beaten to death." Such was the spontaneous expression of someone who had received and appreciated the many profound blessings from the lineage over the years. Thus, we know that, from the point of view of those that had come to know the real worth of Tantric blessings, all sorts of hindrances are merely a natural process of sieving in the Dharmadhatu to ensure that only the elites that are genuinely devoted would have the very rare opportunity to receive Tantric blessings.
