PRAYER TO TEACHER
Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu,
Gurur Devo Mahesh Varah.
Guru Shakshat Para Brahma,
Tasmai Shri Guruve Namah.
The teacher is like Lord Brahma as he Generates knowledge within us,
like Lord Vishnu as he Drives ideas and knowledge into our mind unto the right path,
and like Lord Mahesha (Shiva) as he Destroys the ill-conceived ideas that come from our knowledge,
while enlightening us and helping us stay on the right path.
Thus the teacher is like our ultimate God and we should pray and give respect to our teacher.
