I am grateful to all teachers of the Dharma, back through time. Many people through millennia have engaged with the teachings, expanded on them and passed them on, so the Dharma still exists in the world. And what a time to be interested in the Dharma! Never before in history have the teachings been so accessible. I don’t need to undertake a 20 years trek across the Himalayas in order to find scrolls. I can lay in bed and tap on a screen. It’s quite astounding! I’m grateful to those people who did undertake arduous journeys (both inner and outer) in the distant past, I’m grateful for the internet, and I’m grateful for all the current teachers who make their teachings available to us all.
