"One's zazen must be the ultimate teacher, one's life must be the ultimate teacher. However, relatively speaking, at a certain point in our practice, it can be very valuable – almost necessary – to encounter someone living Dharma. If that person is worth their salt, there will also be a point when they refuse to let you turn them into 'the teacher.'"
