How do we cure the habit of forgetting to learn from the Buddha?

“So we have to remember that we are here to learn from Buddha. I don’t believe that anyone will disagree with this; everyone will think of it this way too. However, let’s take a closer look for a reality check. Have we come here to truly learn from Buddha? This is questionable. Speaking from my experience, we claim that we are here to learn from Buddha but, in reality, we are learning from “me”. …… usually we come to this place to learn Buddhism, I feel that, I feel that I want to do it this way, I want to learn in this manner, I want to learn in this manner!” - Master Jih-Chang
