Be respectful to the spiritual teacher

This is true. And the spiritual etiquettes demand that we are respectful to the spiritual teacher whom we have chosen out of our own free will. If we don’t agree with his ideas or his manners we are absolutely free to find someone else.

This has been traditionally so everywhere and all the time, in the east or the west, now or in ancient days. It is the relationship between the two, the Guru and the Disciple, the Preceptor and the Seeker of the spiritual Truth, and it is all that that really counts in matters spiritual; imposition of secular ideas on it is a misconception. ~ RYD Reply
