Person (i.e., the meditation teacher) refers to one of the Seven types of Suitability, which should be met in order to create an environment that is supportive of meditation practice.—The fourth suitability is that of person, which chiefly relates to the meditation teacher. If the instruction given by one"s teacher helps one to progress, developing concentration that has already arisen, or bringing about concentration that has not yet arisen, then one can say that this teacher is suitable.
