requesting the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to teach

Then requesting the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to turn the wheel of the Dharma, teach. Asking them to teach. Yes of course asking actually Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to teach, you know Bodhicaryavatara, to teach this, to teach that. That is also of course on the outer level. But we are not only talking about teach in the form of verbal. Some people may think, there are no Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to ask. How are they going to teach? Really important to really pray and supplicate to them, please turn the wheel of the Dharma. I think this is one of the greatest way of accumulating the merit. By doing so, for instance if you do the “please turn the wheel of the Dharma”, again and again and again. Next day you read a book, Dharma book, you will understand something that you never understood before. That is the effect of this kind of turning the wheel of the Dharma, I mean asking to turn the wheel of the Dharma. Or anything. Right now so many things happening in front of us which can be interpreted as a teaching. But we just cannot, because we don’t have that enough merit. Yes, asking to turn the wheel of the Dharma, very very important.
