The Gelugpa Lama Tsem Tulku, based in Malaysia, takes an insightful and critical look at the modern relationship between spiritual teachers, students, and Dharma centres.
Touching on a variety of near-taboo subjects, Rinpoche 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. He looks at the whole subject of gurus, disciples, groupies, sponsors, Western Dharma centres, different approaches and philosophies, who's right, who's best - why there is neither right nor best, and at all the bickering, bashing, broken bonds, bruised egos, "Bodhisattvas and boogie-men; and the whole dreamed-up drama that goes on and on".
