Relying on The Excellent Teacher – Why can’t I see Buddha
Why is it we can’t find an excellent teacher now, why? We can’t see our own faults, we don’t see it. We only see the faults of others. This is the real reason. So some people would say, “Eh, well how about those people, are they truly excellent teachers?” These people...yes! They may be excellent teachers and they may not be. It is precisely because there is this situation now which allows you to work diligently from here. And then, you can change from looking at others’ faults to reflecting on yourself instead. Once you have this ability, and then Buddha is in front of you, you will have the chance to be close to him.
