> How does one recognise his/her teacher?
Hi - You know how when your TV's picture gets messed up and the
repairman comes and replaces the broken part, and the picture gets
sharp? You then can say that this repairman or woman is real. Well,
similarly, when you realize your enlightenment, and the picture clears
up, you'll recognize that this or that person was your teacher. For
now, don't worry a bit about it. When you are ready, they will come.
Peace and blessings,
