Committing to a guru can involve considerable risks, but when approached with care, honesty, and critical discernment, the relationship can yield powerful insights. Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditation teacher Scott Tusa guides us through the benefits of having a spiritual teacher, and how to find and assess a teacher, and the role of devotion to your teacher plays Tibetan Buddhism.

Scott Tusa is a Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditation teacher, practice advisor to Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s Pundarika Sangha, and a former monk who has studied in the Gelugpa and Nyingma traditions.
