Ultimate Guru

Kyabje Lama Zopa recently said that our ultimate guru is none other than our own Holy Mind. And as I understand from his teaching, this holy mind is no different than the holy mind of the Buddhas. However, conventionally, due to our deluded state of mind, we can only recognise the conventional guru, who is the physical guru that we can see, hear and touch. The moment we can merge our holy mind with the holy mind of the guru, on a consistent basis, then we are considered to have realised or merged with the mind of the holy guru. At that time, we will be able to see Buddhas everywhere, even in the dirtiest of places such as in the toilets.

So, basically, that's the gist of his teachings. And I am very happy with the message he had taught. THANK YOU.
