No. They are themselves the teacher. He must remain present with them is the important task. Insight into cause and effect which is what this is isn't ordinary nyam.
Mr friend's daughter has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. She says the same type of thing.
Psychic power is necessary to help people.
These aren't psychic powers. This is the superstitious mind. Tibetans are famously superstitious, btw, so this is a common occurrence.
It's function should be understood not downplayed.
It should not be overly dramatized. There is no way to interpret the 'meaning' of these experiences without venturing into samsaric dramas.
These experiences happen due to correct practice. It claiming it as oneself in hopes and fears that's the error.
The basic premise of non-attachment to these coincidences is correct practice.
Don't get me wrong, this stuff happens to me too. But the only thing that 'means' anything is my practice. I could die before tomorrow. (I live in California, where a sudden massive earthquake is geologically overdue.) What importance would all this boogieman blah blah blah mean at that point? It's all just a boat anchor keeping me attached to samsara.
Also when you get around high lamas the tempo of this type of thing accelerates, and not just for the individual. Groups of people can see very
odd coincidences happen. Then when the lama leaves, it stops happening. But no lama I've ever heard of has said that that kind of stuff is important in any way--at all!
Unless I am quoting scripture or a recognized authority my posts are my opinions only and not "Dharma". I offer my posts for entertainment purposes only. I hope you find them either interesting or enjoyable--but don't take anything I say to heart without running it by your own teacher first!
