Pranam Guru

On this day of Gurupurnima, I offer my obeisance to the Guru, the teacher. 

The parents were my first Guru. Since then, in the walk of life, I learned many things from many people. They were not necessarily my seniors. On this day, I remember them and offer my respect. 

Just watch people around you with an open mind and you will find good qualities in them and so many things to learn. 

It is so beneficial being a student for lifetime. 

Once Shri Ramakrishna told his disciples, watch your Guru in the day and also in the night and then only call him Guru. He was talking about the spiritual Guru, the one who takes you on the right path. 

There are many who teach us practical aspects of life, they are also our Guru. 

A Guru could be a historical figure like Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Swami Vivekanand. He may not be a human being or could be even an inanimate object. 

As long as you find something to learn from Him, he is your Guru. 

And then I bow before the greatest Guru of all, the Almighty.
