attending dharma event

Q: Dear Rinpoche, what shall I do if I want to attend dharma events and meet teacher but that will make my family's member angry and upset. In that case, should I stay at home to please them until they are happy for me attend dharma events?

A: You can go in secret and can also listen to live broadcast on the computer or internet or listen to the CD recording. But you must apply some kind of method so that they don't get angry because if you make them angry, then there is a fault on your part.
