For me, when I went looking for my first lama I not only received teachings from all the lamas in the region, but also visited their community events to evaluate the sangha as well... who I guess I saw as an emanation of the lama. This really worked for me, I felt immediately at home.
other aspects of practice, daily activities, dreams, etc...
I would recommend imagining Shakyamuni as your guru, praying to find your Guru in person, and being patient.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra
"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

It came from my heart,
a deep longing to connect
with Tibetan people
and have an authentic Buddhist teacher.
