The structures, the various formats and techniques, as well as the inspiration and guidance of teachers, Buddhas, and Bodhisattvas, are support that we can always benefit from. As long as we need that support, there is no end to it and it is always there. We meet great teachers and masters. we listen to the teachings, we study and reflect. Everyone tries to meditate in his or her own way. Nevertheless, as long as we rely on purely external support and do not really work at the level of our own mind and our own heart, there is not much benefit.
