Thank you - i will check these links..... everytime I pray to Guru Rinpoche about searching for a new teacher/guide, I keep getting visions of a Tibetan musician rather than of a teacher - I wonder if this man will someday become a teacher too - or if my mind is clouded as I like their music.... :namaste:

mouthing on about the view while in a state of self-deception.
It would be better to concentrate on the gradual path.

I have indeed been tempted to progress in that area - :smile: however, it seems that it is not 'the' - if 'a' - teacher for me to pursue.... I am interested, respectful, and read a lot - - but that certain 'connection' is lacking. I keep trying..... i keep reading, exploring, learning....but....
