Divine Relationship

October 28th, 2009 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

During the Vedic period, the teacher was regarded as Guru and the teacher’s wife as Guru Maa (mother). Guru is the person who shows the path to improve in life. Guru is given the place of ( Brahma, Vishnu & Maheshwara ) God. So it was the purest relationship on earth. One can imagine how much responsibility the person should have to become a Guru. He had to control his vices. Guru in those days used to teach the disciple to become a complete man.

When the man started progressing slowly, school and college were established and teachers were appointed. Students bow their head, heart, and soul to the teacher. They fully surrender themselves to the teaching community. They treat them as their parents in the schools or colleges.  Small children believe their teacher more than their mother in many contexts.

Parents protect their children. They save them from unwanted events. They protect them from the devil’s hand. They want their offspring to grow and blossom like flowers. Everyone recognizes the beauty, fragrance, and service of the flowers. Parents want their offspring to flourish like flowers and spread the fragrance everywhere.

When a teacher does not play the role of Parent and indulges in immoral, corrupt, devil-like behaviour, Society will go to hell. Students fearlessly surrender to the Teacher and the teacher, in turn, build up their character. The biggest sin is committed when this Trust is broken.

Small children learn Social values, Moral values, Humanity, Brotherhood, etc. in schools and colleges. They apply everything they learned in school later in their life as they grasp from 2.5 years to 15 years the most.

In the end, why do people choose this profession? Nowadays it has become easy to take up this profession when no other course is possible. They did not have the talent to grasp those values which the right education can give. While selecting Teachers in Schools and Colleges, spiritual, emotional, and moral quotient has to be given importance.  The questionnaire should be set to evaluate. If they can’t keep the value of the relationship, it is not correct to be in this noble profession. Divinity should not be affected by unwanted acts.
