“Irrespective of which of the two Vehicles of the Great Vehicle, the Vehicle of Perfections and the Vehicle of Mantra, one enters, it is definite that the gateway is Bodhicitta alone and to generate Bodhicitta in the continuum, one needs a compassion which cannot bear all sentient beings’ excruciating suffering.”
