Do you consider yourself enlightened Rinpoche?

Question: Your students consider you enlightened Rinpoche. Do you consider yourself enlightened?

Me? No. Because I am still a victim of condition. If I am enlightened then I shouldn’t be. If the students keep on thinking that I am enlightened it will only benefit them. If there is benefit, that is. That’s where the Buddhist teaching on mind comes in. Everything is your mind.
