    I agree with what you say, Taigu. I value a good teacher, even when he tells me things I might not like. But a Daddy? I already got one, thanks.

    Also, it is not the same thing teaching children and adults. And it strikes me that in Treeleaf we're dealing with adults. That's why I respect your approach.

    Gassho with thanks,
    Soen

    Alan Watt once said about Gurus
    "They were people who would pick your pocket and sell you back your own watch."
    Thought this was a witty quote and wanted to share

    Here is a video on this: [youtube] [/youtube]


    Many thanks again to Taigu for his lovely talk!

    You nailed why I love Treeleaf among many things. Yes, the guru practice can be very dangerous, and still people seem to be happy when a leader thinks for them.

    Very illuminating talk. Thank you.

    Some like it when others think for them, that way they won't have to take any responsibility for anything. It is a way to feel safe, but like many others things in samsara, it is just another trap...
