"Lama Zopa Rinpoche answers questions about receiving a lung and passing it on further to help sentient beings: You have to write down what you received. That is an opportunity to help sentient beings to plant seeds to enlightenment, if you get asked. But if you didn`t listen perfectly to the words, to the sound, then it is not a complete lung and that is very dangerous. If Rinpoche is transmiting a mantra, it is working the same way. Rinpoche makes the short comment: to receive the essence of an initiation might be easier then the essence of a lung."
