Today you are YOU because you met a Guru, He taught you what are ethics, he taught you what are values, he taught you what is justice, science and everything. A Value based education is a gift by a guru, Acquisition of knowledge and skills without acceptable moral values and discipline is meaningless. You know how to lead your life , you know how to face problems in your life, you know what is within you, you are made by your Guru, without a guru you are not you, you are just a body with no moral values.
Respect your guru, a devine power acting upon you by your guru which will put a light on your life.
Our Ancient Indian education system was a meaningful education system, Guru-Shishya were having strong bounding, but when English education system introduced by british our education system lost its originality. Today we never see that wonderful relationship between Guru and Shishya. Think for a while what you are today and why you reached this state of your life.
Guru will show you the right path, according to Swami Vivekananda , The first lamp is the Guru, and the lamp that is lighted from it is the disciple. The Guru must teach me and lead me into light, make me a link in that chain of which he himself is a link. The man in the street cannot claim to be a Guru. The Guru must be a man who has known, has actually realised the Divine truth, has perceived himself as the spirit. A mere talker cannot be the Guru. A talkative fool like me can talk much, but cannot be the Guru. A true Guru will tell the disciple, “Go and sin no more”; and no more can he sin, no more has the person the power to sin.
Swami Vivekananda is the man who realised what a guru is for a disciple, we learn the true meaning of guru if we go by his life , only a guru can transform your life.
Happy Teachers Day –
