Something I often said when I was Vice Abbot at Kanzeon:

“We get a lot of people who become members here but very rarely do we get a student.” Instead we get teachers – people who think they know a great deal about everything including the Dharma.

When we finally get a student it is clear that  person has what it takes to be a teacher.

It is even clearer to me today.  The real student, the empty cup, is the real dragon Рthe right stuff.
