The Dalai Lama guides you?  What is he like? He seems like a pretty cool dude, but I've never met him.

Oh, I was confused.  You said you have to practice with an experienced teacher.  I thought you mean you actually practiced with him. Wouldn't it be easier to talk to a priest who actually provides personal feedback instead of an informational video?

Are you saying you have a telekinetic link with the Dalai Lama? or you talk to him on the phone or via internet?

Not much different from trying to learn Orthodoxy through a book.

so why don't you do the same with Christ, have that face-to-face conversation with Him. The Dalai Lama reached out to thousands, Christ reached out to billions before and after His time, both the living and the dead.  He left us the saints, the Church, the Bible, the sacraments for us to not only have a face-to-face guidance, but to actually be a part of Him, and to be One with His Father.  Is there any better mental clarity than to love and be loved by the Creator of all things?

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
