So, based on a little review of this thread, it seems to me that "Transmission" does not mean there is some "mystical" force or energy, or whatnot, that is "transmitted" from master to disciple. Though, in my opinion, some folks think of it that way.
Instead, through a number of specific causal conditions and circumstances, including the conditions of"Proper" student-properly prepared, with appropriate vows, etc. and the "Proper" teacher-with lineage, and with appropriate experience, the properly-proscribed ritual/methodology/ceremony takes place, and transmission occurs.
May any merit generated by on-line discussion
