Re: Etiquette and Ego
Beeing confronted with the same teacher`s teachers every so often :-)
To me the severity of the strict etiquette serves just one purpose...
Awareness and what some people may call spiritual development.
In the act of conscious training all those etiquette`s serve as reminders. Each of them enabling us to spot those places in our mindset we are not aware off.
I for one don`t feel it serves as a strict regime to boost his ego.But as an example of what he tries to develop for himself?? expecting no less from his students.
