Celebrating Teachers Day: Cheers to Teachers who add meaning to our Lives!

In Hinduism, Guru Purnima marks the significance of the contribution of a teacher in one's life

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”
                                                                  – Aristotle 

Sept 05, 2016: Best friend, companion, mentor, philosopher and guide- all these terms are synonymous for a ‘Teacher’. For every student, Teachers Day, that is celebrated on September 5, every year- is more like an occasion to pay tribute and gratitude to their teachers for their continuous selfless effort towards the children and students- in teaching them the art of living, the significance of life.

September 5 also marks the birthday of late former President of India Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a great scholar and marvelous teacher. Students all across the country observe this day, to pay respect to their teachers. They are only one who build up the personality of students and shape them to become ideal beings.

Each and every student is in need of inspiration and motivation to succeed in their life and a teacher nurtures them with knowledge and teaches them to develop a perspective of every situation they deal with. They play a key role towards the education of a student’s life. They become a person with proper vision, knowledge, and experience. The profession of teaching brings with it a mammoth responsibility in comparison to other jobs. Young minds are impressionable minds and therefore it is extremely important to take care of every child in a special manner. Development and growth of a child’s intellect indirectly affect the future of a nation.

It is essential for teachers to challenge the stereotype methods of teaching of their age and develop new techniques so that learning becomes fun rather than a burden. Receiving quality education is essential and therefore one should shift focus from the quantitative education. An ideal teacher becomes courteous most of the time without being impartial and not being affected by insult. Teachers are like second parents to children or students in schools, colleges, and universities.

Since the ancient age, teaching has had a great impact on the humans, whether it is Gautama Buddha, Mahavira or the Brahmins. This is the reason, a Teacher has always been given the highest place of all. In Hinduism, Guru Purnima marks the significance of the contribution of a teacher in one’s life. The Buddha did not teach that a God created the universe but rather he pointed to a great law or ‘dharma’ running through everything that exists. It is by living in accordance with the law, that true wisdom, compassion, and freedom from suffering can be achieved.

Buddha can be seen as great teacher and motivator by his Noble Eight-fold Path which are-
 Right View | Right Thought |  Right Speech |  Right Action | Right Livelihood | Right Effort |  Right Mindfulness | Right Concentration

It is true that we owe more to our teachers than to our parents. Love can never be measured on a scale but this cannot be denied that a teacher shapes the backbone of the society and they helps one to stride forward, build our character as well as prepare us to face life.
