"If you can even see a demon as Chenrezi, your clinging to the reality of negative forces will dissolve, and such forces will no longer be able to create obstacles to your life or practice. When lightning strikes, rocks collapse, or wild beasts threaten, if your mind is filled with the thought of Chenrezi and you rely totally upon him, you will be completely free from fear. At the time of your death, too, if you think only of Chenrezi you will have nothing to fear from the terrifying apparitions of the bardo. But if you are overwhelmed by fear, hesitating between running away or hiding somewhere, you will be in constant anguish all your life, and at death you will be unable to overcome the delusory fears of the bardo."
