I was catching up on this show the other day and was surprised to hear Yamantaka's mantra used during a scene(Season 3 Episode 13 "Full Measure"). It's a violent scene where Mike(resident dirty work handyman) goes on a bit of a killing spree. Weird they'd choose the mantra for a sound bite, not sure if it has any significance other than sounding ominous to the untrained ear. The mantra can be heard at various points through the scene (at the start and then again around 3:10 in the clips linked below). Sounds like Gyuto monks. Couldn't find a code that would embed the video but here's some links to the scene.

Seeds at least

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
