So who is this spiritual friend? How do you identify him being so sure he is not in this forum?No-one can bring back jewels from a treasure island without relying on an experienced navigator. Likewise, a spiritual friend is our true guide to liberation and omniscience, and we must follow him with respect
A Root Teacher is the teacher who has introduced you to the nature of the mind. If you don't think you'll find him on the internet, why wasting the time?
Again, this is a dzogchen perspective. If you follow another yana, then please just ignore what I type.
You are looking for a teacher on the internet? Beware. Take good care of yourself.
Guys who tell you they are not your teacher are the most friendly and honest people you can find here.
