Spiritual Teacher

If you want to learn anything well, you look for a teacher who has mastered the subject you want to learn. Why should you think differently when it comes yo your spiritual life?

To find a way out of suffering, you must find a guide who has already found the way out and can show how to do it yourself.

    This course considers the role of the teacher on the spiritual path, how to find the “right” teacher, and how to relate to that teacher once we have established a connection with them. We will also discuss skillful ways to proceed if difficulties with one’s teacher are experienced and how to practice “guru devotion” most effectively on the path to enlightenment.

    According to Tibetan Buddhism, in order to understand new, vast and profound concepts about our mind, it is necessary to hear, read and contemplate the subject several times. Therefore, we offer you three complementary events about the Spiritual Master:
