Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale
These are my Dharma talk in 2006 of over 24 hours which lasted 3 days, I was inspired to reveal and debunk the many myths that surround spiritual practice, Gurus, Dharma centres and all the political games that are played behind closed temple doors. I talked about the ups, downs, benefits and troubles of Dharma centres all around the world.
Through insightful observations, warm-hearted advice and deeply personal experiences, His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche explores what a Guru-disciple relationship is all about and what it means for contemporary spiritual aspirants. He reveals the ups, downs, benefits and troubles of Dharma centres all around the world and shows us how it is one of the most liberating places we’ll ever know.
Touching on a variety of near-taboo subjects, Rinpoche compassionately shows us the keys to finding our own way in the labyrinths of today’s spiritual supermarket, and why the holy journey is still worth every thorny step we take.
NOT WHAT YOU MAY LIKE, BUT IT IS WHAT YOU REALLY NEED
What you will NOT find in this book is a rose-tinted, candy-sweetened version of the truth. This particular Guru gives it to you AS IT IS. No holding back. And I had to ask myself why i…t is not laced with gentle, tender words, but HARD, BITING statements. But then I realise that may be that is what we really need right now, at this day and age. There is too much fluff and garbage these days. And they are EVERYWHERE! So, this Lama or Guru’s words are like a gust of fresh air sweeping into our dusty, infested, cob-web of a mind. After all, if we do not make the effort to SPRING-CLEAN our mind and lives, what do you think will happen? Most likely, we would become the very cess pool we are seeking to avoid. So, stop running and hiding. Just turn around and tell yourself, today is the day I take back control of my life. Start with reading this book. This is your first step to total freedom – once and for all!
