I have practicaly abandoned my dharma practice lately because I was very hurt by one of my teachers. He recently disrobed, and left our center to pursue all the wordly pleasures that he had given up while he was ordained. It has left me hurt and confused, and I have found that my practice is now full of questions. How could he have been willing to commit his life to the bodhisattva path, and then just give up? What happened to all of his realizations? How can something be so true one day, and just disappear the next? I would appreciate anyone's advice on how I can make my practice sincere again. I miss it so much. Thank you for being out there!
