It is best not to give personal information about oneself or even where one lives.
You do not know who is reading this, or what their intentions are.
For assistance in understanding how a relationship works between a genuine Tibetan teacher and qualified student, Alexander Berzin is a valuable resource.
Berzin's book on this subject is highly valuable. I advise reading it and then using it as a guide to assess your situation. Real teachers stress the Bodhisattva precepts and never, ever claim to be exempted from the commitment to practice Buddhist ethics, no matter how high their attainments.
