From the great teacher's I've seen, they've never played into my expectations of them.
Very true.
For years, every time Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche gave teachings at the (KTC) dharma center where I used to live, it rained.....

But it was always regarded as auspicious, a "Rain Of Wisdom".
It might be auspicious, but chanting pujas for 3 hours in the rain without cover or attire must have been....tough.

I’m a lightweight. I meditate in a chair. I wouldn’t have been able to handle it.

I was very fortunate to be able to attend the ceremony on Sunday. It was indeed very cold and wet, however there was a rainbow in the sky at the moment the procession from the Lama house began. During the worst part of the rain several of us held tarps and umbrellas over the lamas. One of the Lamas I spoke with afterward said the rain was just rinpoche’s way of purifying our obscurations. 😊
