E-mailing the Lamas from Afar is a collection of email exchanges between Aro teachers and their students. These provide advice on real situations faced by Aro students � which are generally similar to those faced by everyone. These dialogs are also useful in giving a sense of what Membership and apprenticeship are like.

The name is a play on a traditional Tibetan prayer title, �Calling the Teacher from Afar�. In Tibet it was common for students to see their teachers only once a year. For many Aro students, scattered about the world, this still may be true. We are fortunate to live in a time in which email and other technologies make regular contact with distant teachers possible.

A similar collection of email exchanges is now also available as a book. The book includes some of the same discussions found here, and some different ones.
