Our time and energies are both very limited; therefore, it is most appropriate for us to adopt one particular Dharma practice and then delve into it. Thus, through the strength of familiarity, it would be easier to attain realizations.
Our habitual grasping to self-centeredness is heavy and deep; therefore, Tantra teaches Yidam practice.
Fundamentally, we still need, first of all, to comprehend the meaning of Blank Essence and Causal Origination, and to develop genuine Bodhi aspiration that dedicates oneself to the practice and propagation of the Dharma so as to help all sentient beings to attain full enlightenment sooner.
Only by living a life in accordance with Dharma and its practices can one gradually forget the previous self-centered personality, and constantly sustain the identification with the Yidam so as to render all thoughts, speeches and activities in accord with enlightened attitudes.
Set up Yidam's image or statue, and make offerings and prostrations to the Yidam. Thus one's relationships with the Yidam will become more and more intimate day by day.
Print Yidam's images, mantra wheel, Sadhanas, etc., for free distribution. Thus one's causal connections with this particular Dharma Gate will daily become deeper and closer.
Follow senior or realized practitioners of the particular Dharma Gate to receive their teachings and blessings through attending them in daily life.
If one practices as mentioned above, then one will have a better opportunity to attain realization. May those dedicate themselves to Yidam practices take heed and strive accordingly!
