‘Teacher is greater than God as he leads us to God’,said Saint Kabir. Not only demons but Gods also had a teacher each- Guru Shukracharya and Guru Bhiraspati. Our parents are our first teachers. When a woman asked Guru Nanak Dev, the first sikh guru,to forbid her son from eating jaggery. Guruji asked her to return after few days. The woman returned after few days, Guru sahib asked the boy obey his mother and not eat jaggery. The woman was puzzled as to why the Guru had not said the same thing to her son earlier. Guruji explained that He Himself was fond of sweets and unless He gave up eating jaggery,He could not ask the same of the boy and expect to be obeyed. Guru Gobind Singh suggested to his father,Guru Teg Bhadhur ,the ninth guru of the sikhs, to go to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb’s court to help the Kashmiri pandits ,who were being harassed by the emperor. He knew quite well that his father and the accompanying disciples would be martryed mercilessly.He, later, had to sacrifice his sons too. He himself led a tough, nomadic life fighting the injustices of the mughal rulers. Teachers show the right path by walking on itself. Our Holy Books are also oDSCN0296ur teachers.
