Relationship with the Lamas

I wanted to say that my Lamas become more remarkable every day I spend with them as their student, but I’ve come to suspect that perception is incorrect. I think actually I realise more and more who they have always been. I take great delight in symbol and ceremony, but have come to realise that having one’s glass refilled with a smile and slight nod of the head come New Year’s Eve is infinitely more remarkable than any tsog feast, empowerment or ritual. To be offered hospitality in one’s teachers’ home, to be able to express a deep fascination for Tolkien, or a loathing for didjeridos, and to have one’s passion fuelled and magnified is a great joy.
