When editing the new Jack Kornfield audio course Transmission: Receiving the Living Wisdom of Spiritual Teachers, Sounds True producer Randy Roark collected a number of Jack’s most insightful and illuminating talks about the benefits and perils of the student-teacher relationship. “Out of all the great stories about teachers like Ajahn Chah, Dipa Ma, and Chögyam Trungpa,” says Randy, “there was one that stood out the most to me, and that I knew would make a great selection for this week’s Producer’s Pick.” In this excerpt, Jack tells a story of a meeting where Western teachers spoke to the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala. Something extraordinary happened that day when the women got up to address the Dalai Lama—and revealed that the greatest transmission can sometimes happen when the teacher becomes the student.
