"Once you invite the blessings of the Dharma into your heart, you may not have much need of teachers or traditions. You can encourage your own knowledge and discipline. Eventually you can secure your faith. Then you will be partners with the Triple Gem. The teachings say that for one who is realized, the heavenly Buddhas, the Dharma, and the Sangha are never far away. We can also put it this way: we already have what we need. We are already home."
