The guru is the essence of all buddhas, Rinpoche reminds us. Therefore, everything the guru does is the holy actions of all the buddhas. It is essential to remember these two things, otherwise we can view our guru as an ordinary being when anger, attachment, or heresy arises, and we can destroy our happiness—right up to enlightenment—by believing they are making mistakes. In reality there is no greater kindness than that of the guru manifesting in an ordinary aspect according to our impure karma. This is what frees us from samsara and brings us to enlightenment and enables us to do the same for the numberless sentient beings. We must remember this always. The teaching for this episode was recorded on September 22, 2018, at Amitabha Buddhist Centre, Singapore.
