【The benefits of relying on the teacher】
Hence through this mindfulness, all your actions are naturally eliminating afflictions and accumulating the collections. Hence you are "increasing [good qualities]." Because you have eliminated afflictions and accumulated the collections, the fruits you experience, i.e. both provisional and final ones, are continually increasing. You will accomplish everything. "You will reach all of your provisional and final goals." There are all these benefits, so many benefits! It does not mean that you will have to wait until the final point before you reap the benefits, but that it will be good for you at present, good for you at present.
【after obtaining virtue through serving and respecting the teacher with thought and practice, you will accomplish others’ welfare, as well as your own, and complete the collections of merit and sublime wisdom. 】
Ah! By you doing this, your thoughts and actions will all be virtuous, will all be virtuous. Hence under this circumstance, since your goal is to accomplish the welfare of the self and others, and now we are benefitting the self and others by accumulating the collections [of merit and wisdom]. When there are favorable conditions for you to accumulate the collections, of course the conditions will be favorable for you to attain the fruit. It will all be perfect. There is this great advantage!
