The Four Considerations for Choosing a Teacher ~ Mingyur Rinpoche

The four considerations for choosing a teacher are: an examination of the lineage, the teacher’s practice history, the teacher’s compassion and willingness to take care of the student, and the teacher’s discipline with regard to maintaining whatever vows he or she has taken. This is not information that you can look up on the Internet. You need to do a little work. But if our assessments check out and there is a heart connection between you and the teacher, our efforts will be worthwhile.
