Relationship with the Lamas

When I think about my Lamas, I ask myself how far I am being true to the teachings I have been given – I imagine them speaking to me. I recall many delightful experiences being with them: in their home; in our own home; on the tops of Welsh mountains; being embarrassed at leading Ngala Nor’dzin into a swamp; and modelling yogic postures for them in a public teaching – without fear. I am enthralled by their teaching style and precision. I am bemused at times by their apparent ordinariness – it seems to test me to stay awake to the moment, at the edge of the unknown. When I am with them I feel I am with special friends; I am refreshed on my journey, jolted and quietly inspired to return to practice – as it is so easy to sloth around.
