So the whole point is about, if you look back on history, of all the great masters and students and how they really met each other. Try to read the history, how they have met each other, you know?
Not every student and guru is met in the temple, you know? Not every guru and student has to be a monk or nun or something pure, with a high and big title, you know? It doesn’t has to be somebody who looks so, you know, holy. It doesn’t have to be that. Long as somebody who can reflect a truth in your heart with a sense of gentleness and kindness towards you. That’s good. Start with that, you know? That’s important.
When you become so dependent into this idea of the “guru” and “everything guru says and you have to do it”. Yes. Everything your guru says, you have to do it, because when you find the genuine guru, he says nothing to you! That’s why you do everything! Because he says nothing to you.
The false one will say, will demand a lot of things, you know. “If you do this, then you are my student”, “if you do that then you are not my student”, “if you do this, and that, then you are really really good student!”, “if you don’t do that one, then you are not a good student anymore. Then you will go to vajra hell!!” You know, that’s the bullshit they, they feed you. And you believe it. And you bring other people along with it, to believing into the same, you know, bs. And then it’s just, it’s not really good for the Buddhist itself. The image of Buddhism itself.
