Guru's Devotion - Commitment to the student - 2018

Guru's Devotion: Commitment to the student, São Paulo, Brazil, December 19, 2018

Discussions of guru devotion usually focus on how a student should behave towards the guru, but not how the guru should treat students. According to Dzongzar Khyentse Rinpoche, the responsibility of the guru is far greater. Once a guru has taken a student, they have full responsibility for them, so it is just as important for a guru to analyze their students as it is for the students to analyze a potential guru. A Vajrayana master must have the utmost respect and compassion for their students as sentient beings who are seeking liberation who, on the most fundamental level, possess Buddha nature.
