The person is becoming more important and famous - a lot of busy things arrive on the path - that is delusion

(“Bless me so that delusion on the path will cease!”) “Delusion” here means when one tries to be a very good Dharma practitioner. And to be a very good Dharma practitioner means to have very little attachment. When one tries to have very little attachment, then many things will come. What may appear in front of that person? Maybe people say: “Oh, can you give me teachings. I will offer you. And we have many friends that want to be your students.” And these [things] are distractions actually. Big distractions.

And the person is becoming more important person and famous. And a lot of busy things arrive on the path. So that’s delusion. We need to focus on the path and whatever one is doing, one should try to continually accomplish, not distracted in the middle of your practice. A lot of people, or a lot of lamas, for example, went to do like a 10-year retreat. Or they like to be in the retreat for all their life, but they got distracted somehow and then gave up. So these are delusions. These are obstacles.
