Reliance on the Spiritual Guide
The quickest way to make progress in anything in life is to rely upon the skillful guidance of a person who is already fully accomplished in what we are trying to achieve. For example, if we want to learn to play a musical instrument or to speak a new language we first find someone who is qualified to teach us. This is also true in our spiritual life – we need to rely upon an authentic and well-qualified Spiritual Guide to help us make swift progress in our spiritual training. All schools of Buddhism agree that the practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.
On this course, reliance on the Spiritual Guide, we look at how to develop confidence and trust in a Spiritual Guide, why having a Teacher or Spiritual Guide is central to our spiritual progress, and how to deepen our experience of the precious practice of reliance on our Spiritual Guide. The course will consist of practical advice and guided meditation.
