Kuja in Meena also adds a spiritual vitality, manifesting as enthusiasm for active compassion and working on charitable projects. Pleasant outcomes.

Weapon of Mind = Shamata
from The Gelug/Kagyu Tradition of Mahamudra by H.H. the Dalai Lama + Alexander Berzin, p. 142
"When we achieve a mind focused on mind with the perfect placement of absorbed concentration, free from all faults of dullness or flightiness,
we increasingly experience an element of bliss accompanying our meditation.
When we experience serene joy, on both a physical and mental level, brought on by the force of total absorption of mind on mind, we achieve a meditational state that fulfills the definition of shamata.
Our ordinary mind is like raw iron ore that needs to be made into a steel sword. Progressing through the stages for attaining shamata is like forging the iron into steel.
To fashion the steel into a sword, or in this analogy to fashion the mind into an instrument that understands voidness, our serenely stilled and settled mind needs to come to decisive realization of voidness as its object.
Without such a weapon of mind, we have no opponent with which to destroy the disturbing emotions and attitudes."
