A disciple asked me to explain the benefits of learning from a Guru through constant attendance, and hence I wrote this Gatha in reply. Becoming a Buddha is a process of complete transformation, and hence it is not suitable to "construct a vehicle within closed doors" and thereby stay stagnant within one's own understanding of what is right. One should follow the Guru constantly in attendance, and thereby gain the opportunities to learn how to apply Dharma properly in all kinds of situations. Thus one may become fully saturated in knowing how to properly conduct Dharma practices and activities, and then gradually transform from resemblance to Guru in appearance to kindred in spirit.
