Everyone is a teacher – Talk by H.H.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Everyone is a teacher you know that?

Like everyone is a son or a daughter or a brother or a sister, everyone is a teacher. Everyone becomes a teacher at some point of time. One who wants nothing but the growth of the disciple and one who is happy with the growth of the disciple is a Guru. He is the one who does something to uplift someone. That does not mean from tomorrow you go to somebody and say “Ok now I am your Guru, you do ‘SO HUM”.

The whole exercise is to become ‘Nobody’ from ‘Somebody’. In that little role of that somebody you can play the role of a teacher. We need to be simple and natural human beings. As you move on the spiritual path, different ability dawns in you.
You know you can bless people and heal people, but you should not use all these abilities to your own use. As you bless people, most of the times you are surprised by what happened, right? If happens, so what? One must not pay too much attention. These are certain things you should not exhibit. Should not say, “Look I can bless, I can heal”, as it simplicity counts. Bhavukta is very important. Never go to a level!

Must move on.. you know like if a professor is behaving like a professor all the times, how would it be? He comes home and he starts behaving like a professor with his wife and his children! Do not be a teacher all the time.Your family will find it difficult then! Your family will be tired of you and say ‘Oh there he started!’

You know once a couple came to attend a Basic Course. Every time the teacher told a point, say, ‘Accept people as they are’, the husband would immediately turn to the wife and say, “Look haven’t I told you this before. That’s what I am telling you all the time”. He is telling his wife but not applying that to himself! Honor everyone. Be natural, and at the same time know the depth of meditation.

    ok! with a little medium to be explain below, i want to talk about personal occupancy or operation.

    we are save to serve in a different areas of life, so such is applicable in terms of teaching because people are trained to teach. if one is not trained i dont see possibility of the person to teach. so in such case one teaches what he or she has learn.

    Like if one is thought on how to operate computer and was thought very well, i believe the person can teach computer base on what and how he was thought. so i can still believe that everyone can be a teacher base on his or her area of operation or occupancy.

    My regards to everyone who attempt to convinced audience that everyone can be a teacher.
