Ten qualifications of a spiritual teacher (Wyl. dge ba’i bshes gnyen gyi mtshan nyid bcu) — these ten qualifications of a mahayana teacher are mentioned in Maitreya’s Ornament of Mahayana Sutras, chapter 17, v. 10, which says:
One should follow a spiritual teacher who is disciplined, peaceful, serene,
Endowed with special qualities, diligent, rich in scriptural learning,
Highly realized concerning the nature of reality, skilled in speaking,
The embodiment of love, and indefatigable.
