Pay attention to Guru’s message at 2:21 sec .

“On this occasion of leave taking… I initiate you into the final wisdom. True knowledge liberates. That is real learning is that which frees you. Now I free you — from all the percepts I gave you. Now the mantra to traverse the path of life is —Atma deepo Bhava (Do that which lights your soul?). That is, you need not take my percepts with blind faith. Use your knowledge (knowledge that you gained) and discriminating intellect to decide your own duty and the path you choose in life.” 

The guru in his final message defined the true purpose of education. You learn from the Guru till you can’t learn anymore, and use that knowledge and discriminating intellect to decide YOUR OWN DUTY and path in life. I would also like to add that not only did he define the true purpose of education but defined the nature of education. You study till you can’t study anymore and then you question everything till you arrive at answers again. Now, Guru has taught me what the words Guru means.

Now I know why they compare Guru to Brahma, vishnu and masheshwara in the prayer our duty to or learning is equivalent to just that prayer.

Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnu Gurur devo masheswara

gurusakhat tasmai guruve namaha.

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.
