There are person's of all spiritual practices that maybe
find themselves in a situation that they feel is not right.
My question to you is would it have been better for your teacher
to persue those desires while still wearing the robe? Teachers are
human too, with all the delusions we have. Besides, the dharma remains the
same no matter who practices. Buddhanature and the potential for
enlightenment is already within you. You don't receive it from someone
else. Just keep practicing the Buddha's teachings and don't rely\
on others to be a "perfect example". I experienced a similar situation
but I finally realized that the whole episode strengthened
my commttment and practice.
Good luck on your path, Stephen Pema Dorje
