“For the seeker after truth only meetings with very great masters and very great sages can be really interesting. It is better to seek, seek, and seek again a real sage, a truly liberated sage, and spend perhaps no more than a single day with him, than to dissipate one’s efforts in encounters and conversations with less representative persons, or persons who are further from true realization.”

— Arnaud Desjardins, from The Message of the Tibetans (qtd. in Thomas Merton’s Asian Journal.)
