依师 : 大乘善知识

那么这个善知识敦巴尊者就说:这个大乘佛法当中的师长,是什么样呢?他呀,那一位师长说的时候,能够发生无量知解。不是简简单单地就是告诉你:「就这个!」不是!他能够各方面问题都了解、都解决,对于认识——质正量圆,这么圆满的认识。那么然后你照着去修行的时候呢,他一定次第不误,眼前得到什么样的利益,将来究竟果位是如何,所以因果之间丝毫不差,次第步骤一点不乱,这个才是真正的善知识。

【Relying on the Teacher】 - A Mahayana teacher

Virtuous teacher Drom-don-ba said: “What is this Guru of Mahayana like? When the guru speaks, the students will be initiated with deep understanding.” It is not merely telling you, “this is the [knowledge] you need!” It is not like that! The Mahayana teacher is capable of resolving all sorts of issues, totally settling them. As for the recognition of the encompassing teachings – it is of virtuous and complete quality, and perfect knowledge. Therefore, when you practice accordingly, he will teach you in a systematic order unmistakably – what is the immediate benefit and what will the future ultimate effect be like? Thus, it is flawless between cause and effect, and the systematic sequence is completely in order. With these [good qualities], he is then a true virtuous teacher.
