Lama Jigme Gyatso
Searching for a Worthy Teacher - 22oct21
that she did not really want to meditate,
but that she still wanted to feel terribly righteous
about not meditating.
So she pretended that she,
like Padawan: Cal Kestis,
was searching vainly
for one good meditation teacher.
She worked hard to convince herself
that all were unworthy,
and she also worked rather hard
to convince herself that she was disappointed
by the absence of a worthy teacher.
What is the test of a teacher?
how effective are his or her teachings
when you apply them every morning and every evening
for seven consecutive days?
Anything else is but a self-righteous diversion.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
