Bias and narrowness of others' views and silliness of their attachments are both difficult to explain so that they could realize their own mistakes and often impossible to give advice on, due to such people's self-righteousness. Therefore, when we awoke from some ignorant illusion through other's guidance we should realize that the grace was very profound because such was indeed a rather rare occasion of good fortune.
