TEACHERS DAY/SANSKRIT DAY -5th September

 

All over the world, teachers are kept on a high pedestal- a mentor, a preceptor to be respected and revered. In fact India holy Motherland deems TEACHER as next to Father and Mother and before God! Matha- Pitha – Guru -Dheyvam!

To me my elementary school teachers who taught me alphabets and fundamentals are more venerable! My father was also a Guru for me as he was a Teacher/Headmaster!

Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan-basically a teacher turned Philosopher-President was born on FIFTH SEPTEMBER and in deference to his desire and wishes the day is observed as TEACHERS DAY in India. Today also happens to be SANSKRIT DAY! It was therefore decided to post a SANSKRIT hymn in praise of GURu-the TEACHER in the original in Sanskrit, its English transliteration and meaning in English I am confident and sure that our esteemed viewers are bound to enjoy the read.

Saluatations are to that guru who showed me the abode–
the one who is to be known–whose form is the entire
universe and by whom all the movables (animals) and
immovables are pervaded . (l)
Salutations to that guru who opened the eyes of the one
blind due to the darkness (cover) of ignorance with the
needle (coated) with the ointment of knowledge . (2)
Salutations to that guru, who is the Creator, Sustainer,
and Destroyer and who indeed is the limitless Brahman . (3)

Salutations to that teacher who showed me the one to be
known, who permeates whatever that is movable and immovable,
sentient and insentient . (4)
Salutations to that teacher who showed me (by teaching)
the pervader of all three worlds comprising the sentient
and insentient . (5)
Salutations to that guru who is the sun to the lotus of
VedAnta and whose lotus feet are made radiant by the
jewel of all Shrutis (UpaniShads). (The guru is
established in the vision of the Shruti and is the one
by whom the Shruti blossoms forth.) (6)
Salutations to that guru who is Awareness, changeless
(beyond time), who is peace, beyond space, pure (free
from rAga and dveSha) and who is beyond the manifest
and unmanifest (NAda, Bindu, etc.) (7)
Salutations to that guru who is rooted in knowledge
that is power, adorned with the garland of Truth and
who is the bestower of the joy of liberation . (8)
Salutations to that guru who by bestoying the knowledge
of the Self burns up the bondage created by accumulated
actions of innumerable births . (9)
Salutations to that guru; the perennial flow of wisdom
from the one rooted in the vision of the Shhruti dries
up totally the ocean of transmigration (saMsAra) and
reveals (teaches) the essence of all wealth (the fullness,
freedom from want). (10)
There is nothing superior to knowledge of truth; no
truth higher than the truth, and there is no purifying
austerity better than the truth; salutations to that
guru . (11)
Prostrations to that guru who is my Lord and who is
the Lord of the Universe, my teacher who is the teacher
of the Universe, who is the Self in me, and the Self
in all beings . (12)
Salutations to that guru who is the beginning and the
beginningless, who is the highest Deity and to whom
there is none superior . (13)
Oh God of all Gods! You alone are my mother, father,
kinsman, friend, the knowledge, and wealth . You are
to me everything . (14)
