How to become Lama?


This blog's author wishes to become Lama, but way ahead still is unclear & seems long.

Perhaps this can happen in this life, if not then in another.

Probably my mental illness is a major obstacle as well.

Who is Lama?

'Lama (Tibetan, Sanskrit: Guru): The highest or heavy with good qualities. Buddhist Teacher. One of the Three Roots. He is especially important in the Diamond Way as he is the key to the deepest teachings. Through Guru Yoga meditation on the lama, one receives blessing, through which one may momentarily experience the true nature of mind. The lama mirrors the Three States of Enlightenment.

-- Quoted from 'The Way Things Are' by Lama Ole Nydahl.'

The teachings for a future Lama.

'Three Year Retreat: Traditional training of many lamas in Tibetan Buddhism. It lasts three years, three months and three days. It is conducted in single sex groups. It consists of the Four Foundational Practices, outer, inner and secret yidam practices, and the Six Teachings of Naropa.

-- Quoted from 'The Way Things Are' by Lama Ole Nydahl.'

Divine Madman?

Can a mad person strive for Holiness?

History proves it can happen.

Keith Dowman,

'Divine Madman: The Sublime Life and Songs of Drukpa Kunley'.

'Drukpa Kunley (Wyl. 'brug pa kun legs) or Kunga Lekpa was an eccentric master of the 'crazy yogi' or 'divine madman' type, whose enlightened deeds and exploits, often involving women and alcohol, are commonly recounted even to this day among Tibetans and Bhutanese people.'

Blog author's comments.

Lama is also called 'Highest Wisdom'.

Lama joins blessings, methods & protection.

i think that 'Three Year Retreat' requires preparations as well, but i am not sure of it, not sure of any of the details as well.
