Relating to the Spiritual Teacher: The Lifeblood of Our Practice

Paula will talk about how to relate to the spiritual teacher or mentor (guru) as a method for developing our own spiritual realizations. We will learn about the advantages and levels of engagement with a qualified guide; how devotion to a person with qualities we respect and honour helps us to develop these same qualities in our own way; and how to avoid the risks that may come from a devotional relationship. For someone with deep experience, this inspiring relationship is the root and life of the path to spiritual realization. The compassionate and wise outer guru and our inner wisdom guru help us to dissolve away the inner obstacles which hinder us from realizing our potential for inner peace and great meaning.

Paula is happy to answer any questions about practicing the spiritual path.

Opportunity to Sponsor the Teachings

Sponsoring the teachings helps to make the teachings available to everyone. In this way, we are able to practice the generosity of giving of the Dharma and thereby create vast amounts of merit. Our programs are given freely, and we rely also on your generosity – this is the traditional and pure way of the Buddha Dharma. Offering support for the Dharma can be a limitlessly powerful act. This is the highest, most long-term form of generosity, which is to share with others the path to full awakening. Offering support deepens our connection to Dharma teachers and connects us as a community.

Remember to make an aspiration/dedication to accomplish your goals for yourself and others before making the offering. With clear intention, we can create causes to accomplish the welfare of both ourselves and all sentient beings, or of any heartfelt cause.
