When we talk about Dharma teacher, he or she is not outside our body. Teacher is always in our heart. There’s a saying in Tibetan that there’s no distance between teacher and student. We can practice the dharma every day even when the teacher is not around. With wholeheart devotion, our mind is not separable from the teacher’s mind. Whatever we do, whatever we speak, whatever we think, we should always remember that they are what the teacher does, what the tearcher says and what the teacher thinks. And the teacher is not separated from Buddha or yidam, our main deity.
