I have been encouraged and authorized to teach! My teacher is a former Thai forest monk for 17 years, and now leads retreats and teaches the dharma. He confirmed my attainment (not that I needed confirmation) and we discussed me teaching the dharma.
What he said was “when I’m helping and sharing the dharma, I feel so complete and whole and peaceful, I could die.”
I really, really know what he means. A Bodhisattva has this one drive, and they could die without fear, but the thing driving a Bodhisattva is compassion.
