Summary
"The aspiration for writing this book is to provide a road map that can help students to make the most of studying with an authentic Vajrayana master. This includes facilitating a deeper understanding of the student-teacher relationship and how to avoid mistakes that are leading to the kinds of destruction we are seeing in many communities today. This map is presented not from the top down, but from the very real, personal experiences of a student who has experienced the great benefits and challenges of studying virtually 24/7 with their teacher while serving as a translator and conduit for the community around them"--
