It is good enough for dharma followers to not jump into a connection for the wrong personal reason, but to follow a teacher for the purpose of dharma. It is good enough to follow the dharma teacher not because of dharma politics

Vairocana said something like, “Nobody may be satisfied, but it is good enough to do things that don’t upset the Buddha.” It is good enough to not cheat those who believe or trust in you. It is good enough for dharma followers to not jump into a connection for the wrong personal reason, but to follow a teacher for the purpose of dharma. It is good enough to follow the dharma teacher not because of dharma politics. It is good enough to follow a dharma teacher not for the purpose of being against somebody. It is good enough to follow a dharma teacher when not knowing a lot. It is good enough to follow a dharma teacher without too much doubt.

When people follow a teacher for those wrong reasons that I mentioned, people will waste a lot of time, a lot of wealth, create bad karma and eventually they either lose their faith or regret it and meet a bad result. They also miss a good opportunity in this life and the next lives. Therefore, anyone who wants to be a dharma teacher, has to understand that one is responsible for the future of one’s followers and try their best.
