"In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful.”
~Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, from the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully
