Sample text

Why? For a very simple reason. If the person in question is a friend of a practitioner, the practitioner deserves his or her friend's respect. The practitioner can explain that the path, 58 the teaching, and the practice are things that he or she con­ siders important and serious, asking their friend in a nice way not to demean this seriousness by their curiosity, because to interfere in such a manner with something important is not very nice. Making a request in this way, ifthis person is a real friend, they will certainly respect it.

But if we are going to dedicate our lives, our precious time, to a teaching, it's much better to understand well what the origins of that teaching are, what its value is, and in what way one can have realization through it, and so on. The basis of the teaching is transmission and if one understands this well, one protects the transmission, maintains the transmis­ sion, and those who are interested in receiving the transmis­ sion can prepare to do so. So one can work in this way. We all know that it's very useful and important to col­ laborate, and that this is true for everyone.

The Geko should not create a circle of friends, this is very dangerous. Many times that happens, but the Gekii must re­ member that his or her work is a service for the whole of the Community and should not become a personal thing for cre­ ating his or her circle of friends. This does not mean that the Gekii cannot do anything personal. There always exists a pos­ sibility for a personal life. The same hold true for the members of the Gakyil. Usu­ ally I see many manifestations of egoism, and many practi- 55 tioners remain fixed in their convictions defending them at length in arid discussions.
