Question: How should a disciple approach the master in thought and during meditation?
Answer: Think of the teachings and try to apply them in your life. Then the master is with you always. A teacher is not some person; the teaching is the real teacher. If you follow the teaching, you will always have the teacher with you. Don’t try to get the teacher into your heart; instead get the teaching into your heart. Keep it there, and you will feel your master’s presence and guidance always.
