How do we began to make sense of the hurt we experience when our teachers cross boundaries? How do we hold our belief in the teacher's realization in dialogue with the reality of the humanity of the teacher? In this talk first offered in April of 2017, I speak of my relationship to my teachers and how I have attempted to make sense of realization and ignorance and the development of wisdom in the face of this duality.
Continuing where I left off in part 1, I explore some textual resources connected to how the teacher is traditionally understood. I also share some of my personal experiences with my teachers.
