Ethical Responsibility of a Teacher

From a series of Tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo @ahkonlhamo

When one assumes the role of teacher, Guru, sensei, whatever,  one has an ethical responsibility to reveal qualifications and identity.  When students follow a Guru there must be trust and respect. The teacher owes the disciple the respect of transparency and character, so the disciple can make an informed choice on an issue that will affect them in EVERY future life. If one is misguided they will spiral down spiritually.

If a person, in their delusion and psychosis believes themselves to be a Guru that does not grant qualities. One MUST see the life and past history and good works so the student can be careful. If the person seeking to teach is ethical they will give that information.

Remember that seeds produce their OWN fruit. An apple seed will never produce a pineapple. A man with violence, perversion and dishonesty will always produce more of the same. It is the seed of their life.   A person may find redemption if they work VERY hard and for a long time to do so. There is NO instant change. One MUST apply the antidote; and after a low life of violence and shame, can only hope to purify their wrongdoing. To jump up and hide identity, claiming enlightenment and instant ability to teach others is absurd and makes fools of the followers.  They are looking for pure accomplishment, not a song and dance. Not kabuki theatre with masks. How will they know?

Now, if one wishes to TALK about Dharma and debate- well anyone CAN do that AND it is a good thing. As long as nothing is hidden and the discussion is open to all. AND the Guru wannabe DOES NOT CLAIM TO BE an ENLIGHTENED MASTER. That robs students of choice and dignity.  It is snake-oil criminal. Period.  If there is delusion, psychosis and a dark violent conniving past it must be revealed for the sake of all sentient beings.

Talk all you want, but do NOT fool honest followers. Some evidently don’t care about character, talk to them, but man, do NOT lie to put yourself up or mix your paint so no one knows what you are. Drop and purify that diseased ego. We don’t need it

And nobody will EVER benefit from your haughty self cherishing. Like a bad little boy playing king. We have politicians for that.

Exercise and energetic activity is highlighted today.  Take action!  Move ahead!  You must be careful not to tactlessly offend others with flip, off the cuff comments or jokes that do not go over well. The feelings of others are most important here. No matter what you meant, if you’ve hurt someone apologize promptly. (Do not say, “You don’t understand!”  Say, “I haven’t explained myself well.”) Your social skills gain you an advantage that your knowledge and intelligence could not.  Everyone wants to be respected.

Excellent interpersonal energy is flowing today.  Men are sensitive and imaginative and women are deep, thoughtful and intelligent.  Both sides are aware of the issues at hand and work together to solve them. You make plans that are realistic, and the work you do today is excellent and may become your standard for the future.  You are still dealing with a thorny problem, and you feel you need positive results to be happy.  Richard Wagner said, “Joy is not in things, it is in us.”  Don’t wait; be joyful now.

A canny, behind the scenes intelligence is in effect today.  Things are being worked out and not necessarily the way you imagined.  Happiness appears during the course of work or a job carefully done. If you have trouble talking with someone you may have presented your case in a way that offended their dignity.  Re-frame your request and try again, using a more humble approach, and things go well.

Inspiration!  Look for it today.  Widen your viewpoint to take everything into account today.  John Ruskin said, “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”  This attitude can apply to both outer weather and also inner weather.  Be resilient today.  You will meet many varieties of weather today.  Be flexible, and you’ll float through the day.

A diplomat says something nice that makes someone’s day today!  Could that person be you? Beauty inspires you and you need R and R. Spend time with your partner or people with whom time passes happily; you have that choice.    A persistent sense of running into roadblocks permeates the big picture, so spend time working on the details.  Do keep your overarching goals in mind, however.  Yogi Berra said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you might end up someplace else.”

Mother Earth

I LOVE the greeting on “AVATAR” which is “I SEE YOU”; said mindfully and deeply. Yes, saw it 5th time with Atira. Cry every time.

“I SEE YOU”. How I wish we all could SEE like that. I want to move to Pandora and get an Avatar body.

As on Pandora I wish the people knew their oneness with tree + forest. Could connect utterly! Walk with grace and beauty! Lived in spirit!

Ooh, right. The indigenous American Indians were just so; and we killed them like in Avatar. We burnt their mother. Our mother.

I guess that’s why we’ll never live on Pandora. We are not blue, we are whitey/pink. And we burn our Mother every day. OM MANI PEDME HUNG

I weep for the rape of our Mother. Even as she comforts us and sets us FREE. #stopthehate #bringthelove #animalrescue #saveTibet

Prayer for the People of the Earth

DZAM LING CHI DANG YUL KHAM DI DAG TU

At this very moment, for the people and nations of the earth,

NED MUG TSON SOK DUG GNAL MING MI DRAK

May not even the names of disease, famine, war, and suffering be heard;

CHO DEN SONAM PAL JOR GONG DU PEL

Rather, may pure conduct, merit, wealth, and prosperity increase,

TAG TU TASHI DE LEK PUN TSOK SHOG

And may supreme good fortune and well-being always arise!

You start off the day tired or discouraged.  Perhaps you’ve overworked, or perhaps you’ve run into a roadblock.  Maybe higher ups aren’t pleased with what you’ve done, or else an unexpected variable turns up.  The proverbial monkey wrench can get thrown into the works, and you feel frustrated.  It’s Friday and you’ve worked hard all week.  Spend time at home, loved ones are comforting and they know your true worth.  Oscar Wilde said, “Keep love in our heart.  A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.”

You are the proverbial busy bee today, zipping around from thing to thing.  Paper work, details, arrangements, appointments! You can feel a bit critical of others who don’t seem to share your work ethic or operate with your efficiency.  Be grateful and be aware that others are doing their job. Albert Einstein said, “My inner and outer life depend on the labours of others, living and dead.  I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received.”
