"A master must be the right age. A young teacher is too inexperienced. An older one will be too impatient, too irritable, and too interested in completing his or her own spiritual quest. In general, it is best to begin one's study with a master who is between the ages of fifty and sixty-five"
Thought this was an interesting point
