Blessings are necessary and if the Guru says you can practice without a lung that is a blessing of the lineage, albeit big or small.
One does not have a Vajrayāna guru sans empowerment.
What is that?

No empowerment, no guru.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Many students and even the monks reject alot of the teachings and dont follow the advice of the Buddha as written in the scriptures, let alone the advice of the teacher.
Umm.........really? That's a pretty broad statement. What's your evidence for this?
Ask Kalu Rinpoche.
The current one? I guess I want to know the context in which he said it.
May the stupid meditators be awakened from the sleep of ignorance;
May the attacks of the logicians with their sophistries be vanquished.
