“When the student is ready the teacher will appear”

Ahimsa Porter Sumchai writes:

“Origins of the quote “When the student is ready the teacher will appear” is widely debated but I assure you Mabel Collins is not the author! The quote has been attributed to Buddha and the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism along with Tao Te Ching and Zen proverb. Jean ALuc Lafitte recorded in England studios in 2002, When the Student is ready the Master will appear. Calvin Simms authored a book titled When the student is Ready the Teacher will appear on Amazon.”

From the Big Voices website:

“Although the quote “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” was thought to have been said by Buddha it is actually of Theosophical origin.”

From The Minds Journal website:

“When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready the teacher will Disappear. Lao Tzu”
