In order to receive a complete and authentic transmission of the Path to Enlightenment, it is necessary to rely on a genuine Master connected to a transmission line where the current of grace is uninterrupted.

Meeting with such a Master is not a coincidence. It is only possible by the ripening of past actions and wishes.

So when the Master is revealed to us, it is through him that we have access to the path without error.

This Master is called ‘Root’ because he is the source of all grace and of getting the achievement.

It is through the Masters of the lineage that the current of grace and achievement flows through generations from Master to Disciple ever since the primordial Vajradhara Master, who is no one else than the pure manifestation of the Buddha Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha.
