Qualities of a Dharma Teacher - Samye Dharma


We might believe that choosing a Dharma teacher is a matter of finding someone famous. Perhaps we decide to follow someone who has written a lot of books. Or, maybe our friends or colleagues tell us we should go hear a certain teacher.  But nowadays, we may wonder how we can possibly know who is qualified to teach the Dharma?  And how can we begin to evaluate a teacher when there seem to be so many people offering teachings, retreats, or courses? Do we just follow someone who is popular or do we need to do some research? And how can we make smart choices?
