Review Alex Berzin has taken head-on one of the hottest issues of Buddhism in the West-the teacher-student and guru-disciple relationship. I consider this a seminal work. (Lama Surya Das, author of Letting Go of the Person You Used to Be ) This is the most thoughtful and comprehensive book yet written on the teacher-student relationship. Alex Berzin provides readers with both clear-eyed wisdom and extraordinary knowledge of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. (Jack Kornfield, author of The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness and Peace ) This is a splendid book, covering cultural considerations, the traditional meanings and types of both teacher and seeker, and the dynamics of a healthy relationship. He confronts fears, blocks, over-dependence, rebellion, transference and regression. A very helpful handbook. (Mandala Magazine, Editor's Choice ) An informative, thoughtful, and in-depth approach to the mentor-student relationship, this book will benefit both newcomers to the path and more advanced practitioners. (Ven. Thubten Chodron, author of Buddhism for Beginners ) Alex Berzin's work is the first serious attempt to write a comprehensive study of the issues involved in the student-teacher relationship in Buddhism. It is to be hoped that this will be the vanguard of a whole genre of literature on this important and controversial subject. (Shenpen Hookham, author of The Buddha Within ) Read more About the Author Alexander Berzin received a PhD from Harvard University in 1972 from the Departments of Far Eastern Languages and Sanskrit and Indian Studies. A member of the Translation Bureau of the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives since 1972, he is the author of numerous books and articles.
