Teacher-Student Relationship in Buddhism
This week’s talk, given by Meditation Instructor Eric Weinberg, is entitled, “Teacher-Student Relationship in Buddhism.”
We can sense the presence of Buddha nature in a spiritual friend, our Lama. To the degree that we can have a felt sense of the presence of Buddha we can begin to have faith in our own Buddha nature and the Buddha nature in others. Our Lama invites us into the practice of aspiring, nurturing strengthening, and engendering kindness and compassion. The path the Lama points out and helps us to progress upon becomes our path, a path worthy of having faith in.
