How can I find a teacher who is a stream entrant?

Any suggestions? Recommendations?

  • It's good, in my view, to keep the perspective of looking for someone, a teacher by personal contact. I've recently come to the -a bit sarcastic, of course- reasoning that there might a tendency begin to occur to settle with video-stream-entering instead... Commented Oct 30, 2018 at 10:19

Into the Stream -- A Study Guide on the First Stage of Awakening and The Power of Judgment might help.

It's all a matter of having done what leads to blessings -- and "dwelling" in borderlands:

A monastery, traditional Wat (pi: vatta) is an outwardly borderland ...

A "borderland" is a "state" between home and homelessness, outer lands and noble domain ...

  • This @Medhiṇī seams to be... it's by an element that beings gather together, again and again... give a fool knowledge: all he would be able is to destroy his last little goodness.... Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 11:23
  • @Medhiṇī I reversed this edit (see also Is the disclaimer necessary?).

Mirror of Dhamma:

Stream-entry is often called the arising of the Dhamma eye. What stream-enterers see with this Dhamma eye is always expressed in the same terms: "Whatever is subject to origination is all subject to cessation.

A stream enterer understands that everything happens perfectly automatically according to conditions, and identity is only due to the illusion of unified experience.
