Godwin Samararatne (1932-2000)
"So the importance of the teaching is that we see clearly how we create our own suffering and through that realisation it becomes clear that only we can free ourselves of the suffering we create ourselves. Then we become self-reliant. Then we learn to have self-confidence that whatever arises: I know how to handle it with the help of the Dharma. Then you learn to be your own teacher. And as the Buddha said, you learn to be a light unto yourself. One last point on this topic. I have had the good fortune to meet many masters, many gurus, many teachers from many traditions. Do you know which master, which guru has most inspired me? It is life itself. Life is our best teacher. So thanks to the Dharma, when you realise the importance of the Dharma, life becomes your teacher. And sometimes life can be a very hard teacher, but it is always a good teacher. It can indicate to us what we really are." Godwin Samararatne
