Happy Teachers day!;Saint Surdas and his Guru

Surdas was an eager student who wanted to learn about Spirituality. He met a Guru who accepted him as his disciple. The Guru found that Surdas was hampered by his quality of getting angry easily, which prevented him from learning. Thus, the Guru decided to make Surdas shed his anger. The Guru asked Surdas to chant God's name while doing all his activities for one month and then meet him. Surdas followed the Guru's instructions and the day after one month, he went to meet his Guru. On his way to Guru's ashram, a sweeper on the street carelessly put dirt on his clothes. Surdas got angry and scolded the sweeper. He went home, changed clothes and then met his Guru.

To his surprise the Guru told Surdas that he was not yet ready to learn and he had to chant and do his chores for another month.Surdas returned sadly, and continued to chant God's.

Moral:

  1. A Guru knows what a student is lacking of and knows the ways that would teach him;
  2. As a student, you must have faith in Guru's words and follow them with devotion.
