How to Rely upon a Spiritual Guide

The quickest way to make progress in anything in life is to rely upon the skilful guidance of a person who is already fully accomplished in what we are trying to achieve. For example, in our ordinary education we need to rely upon the help of well-qualified teachers to guide us from the level of nursery school to the completion of college or university training. This is also true in our spiritual life –  we need to rely upon an authentic and well-qualified Spiritual Guide to help us make swift progress in our spiritual training.

Such a deep root cannot be planted hastily. We need to become acquainted with someone who has all the qualifications of a Spiritual Guide, and gradually gain confidence through their teaching and example so that we can rely upon their guidance. Our relationship with our Spiritual Guide is the very source of all spiritual attainments, therefore we must make sure that he or she possesses all the necessary qualifications.

On this day course Gen Thekchen, will teach on how we can find and rely upon a Spiritual Guide with confidence and trust. Advice will be given on what qualifications we should look for in a Spiritual Guide and how we can overcome any fears that may arise surrounding this reliance.


This event is taught by Gen Kelsang Thekchen, senior Buddhist Monk and Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva KMC.
